This Etoile (L'Etoile) model ship of a famous French schooner is a copper pinned plank on frame ship model of museum quality.
The schooner L'ÉTOILE and her sister ship Belle Poule were built in the shipyard of Fécamp, France in 1932. They served as cod fishing vessels off the coast of Iceland until 1938. The season was approximately seven months. During this time the ships mostly operated in depression area with heavy weather. They were built accordingly, stout and sturdy, and for that reason were selected later on as navy training ships. Today French navy officers get their education on them.
