This beautiful antique Carette steamship has been gracing our office for over 17 years, and it is time for it to find a new home. Listed in the 1911 Carette catalogue as a “Pleasure Steamer”, stating: “Our Models are of the latest type and scale design”. With four funnels, double deck and bridge. The killer is that this is a live-steam toy ship! Take off he superstructure and you’ll find the boiler and engine. (I’m not sure I’d fire up the boiler after over 100 years…) Somewhere in its lifetime it was stripped of all the paint, (originally it was japanned), the masts went missing, along with ensign, and a wire pin hinging the superstructure. But everything that makes the ship whole is accounted for. This is a rare and very beautiful tin toy in excellent condition, from back when they made real toys. You’ll love this ship! Measures from stem to stern 16 ½” long.
