For a short period of time in the 1930’s, Chester Rimmer designed boats were sold under the JACRIM label by the Keystone Toy Co. of Boston. The small black sloop was very popular and rarely survived in good original condition. This little black sloop has good original color and has not been repainted. The gold sheer strip and bow flourish is particularly crisp. The deck is very clean with a perfect JACRIM decal and original brass cups around the screw eyes. The self-steering spring on the tiller is also original. Sails, rigging and spars are new restorations using natural color cotton cloth and cotton braided cording.
