Typical of the War of 1812-15, the Lively, a private armed schooner, was described as “Virginia built: with many rigging configurations and cannon options that allowed the American ‘pirates’ to harass larger British ships along the East coast.”
After the war this type of vessel was popular because of its speed under sail, and many owners successfully used the two-masted schooner in the African slave trade.
The model is hand-crafted using walnut, mahogany and birch. It is 1/4-inch scale, single planked hull on bulkheads. Cherry wood case. Dimensions: 10” W x 26” L x 21 1/2” H
