January Grand Finale
NEW ON MODELEXPO
The yacht Mary was built in the Netherlands and was presented to King Charles II by the City of Amsterdam on the occasion of his proclamation as King of England. It is considered the pleasure boat prototype. Reconstruction of the model has been helped by a picture by Van der Velde and by archaeological remains from where the ship was wrecked, which came to light in the 1970s. The model is, therefore, faithful and structurally identical, as far as the construction process is concerned, in comparison with our other bigger models. It is particularly rich in precious, molten decorations, for which exclusive pieces made by a renowned sculptor have been used.
