Rare and unusual Wooden Weather Vane of a Sailor with a pipe, holding flags and Union Jack.
In the original box. The inside of the box has the maker "Authentic Models Holland - Amsterdam, New York"
The model is made of wood and hand painted. The arms are articulated and attached by (copper?) wire tubing.
The item is in 3 pieces in the box as can be seen in the photos.
It is a vintage item, probably from the 1960s/ 70s.
It is in great condition. The figurine and flags/ sails show only very minimal wear. Box shows fading/ scuffing and the lid is removed from the box.
The box measures 9.25" (23cm) long.
The completed weather vane stands at 7.5" (19cm) tall.
A great piece of maritime memorabilia, or an excellent collectible for any vintage toy lover!
