A fine wooden handcrafted museum quality ship model of the famous Dutch ship the Friesland. Ornated with decorations.
The Friesland was a second rank vessel with 80 guns built around 1663, part of the great fleet of the United Provinces of Holland, consisting of 1700 units. In 1672, sided by 77 vessels under De Ruyter’s command, on board of the admiral-ship Zeven Provincen, it took part in the battle of Solebay with the allied Anglo-French forces. The reconstruction has been carried out on the ground of a reliable Dutch documentation. The model distinguishes itself for the particular refinement of the poop decorations and of the superstructures of the deck.
