A model of the 1869 English sail powered ship Cutty Sark in a display case. This late 19th century finely detailed model of the Cutty Sark sits in a display case that showcases the extraordinary work of art the ship was. One of the last - and fastest - of the tea clipper sail powered ships built for the trade routes from England and her colonies in Asia, the Cutty Sark today is on permanent display in Greenwich, London. This model is an exquisite work of art unto itself, with every detail seeming to be a miniature version of the ship many know from the Scotch whisky. Elegant, timeless and simply beautiful, this Cutty Sark model from the late 19th century is tribute to an earlier time when sailing vessels ruled the seas. Whether in a den or an office lobby or a large living room, this piece of history will fascinate young and old alike.
