Antique Clipper Ship Model Nautical Shadowbox

Antique clipper ship models, and nautical items make great gifts, and bring a nostalgic look to any decor. I love nautical treasures, and every once in a while you find some very unique clipper ship decorative items to enjoy. This nautical shadowbox is a wonderful example of a difficult to find nautical treasure!

The clipper ship shadowbox is very interesting, and in that the clipper ship is encased within a shadowbox, you wouldn't have to worry about dusting the clipper ship model!

It's a fine treasure indeed, and one that I wish I could own. The images of the clipper ship shadowbox have been used by permission of Mastadon Trading from his eBay listing, and I thank him for allowing me to share this unique item with you! (Update RE: 'Mastadon Trading' - the link I originally provided to the sellers store is no longer an active store, so I removed the link).

The shadowbox measures 20" x 15" x 3".

This 19th century antique clipper ship model would be a difficult item to find again! It's not uncommon to see clipper ships in a bottle, but you don't see them very often displayed within a shadowbox.

Safely displayed from within a shadowbox is really a good way to preserve a clipper ship model, and the sails would remain in pristine condition. It also provided an interesting background for the model, rather than having it simply sitting on a stand. It makes it all the more realistic displayed like this.

I imagine you've enjoyed this sailing treasure, and for now must sail off to another project for the day! Happy sailing!

Thank you for commenting about the antique clipper ship shadow box. It really is unique, and would probably be difficult for someone to find one of these again!

Hi Unknown,
That's all the information I have about the unique clipper ship shadow box! And now I see the seller of the shadow box no longer has the store, so I updated that information in my post.
Thank you for your comment!

I have one of these shadow box clipper ships. Do you have any idea what it would be worth? Thank you.

Hello Unknown, Thank you for returning to Tall Sails Adventure! You may wish to seek an appraiser of nautical collectibles to determine the potential value. If they are not local to where you are, you could provide them with photos. I'm not able to provide you with an appraisal or estimate. Thank you though for asking. Best of luck to you!
