Details

A FINE AND RARE FRENCH NAPOLEONIC PRISONER-OF-WAR BOXWOOD MODEL OF A SIXTH RATE FRIGATE NAMED H.M.S. VOLAGE circa 1810, MOUNTED ON LATER INLAID BASE WITH BONE BALLUSTRADING
The hull sheathed in copper, with horn wales, planked and pinned decks and hatch-cover glazed with mica, fitted with bone figurehead of a woman. The deck fittings include bone wheel, capstan, windlass and 22 well modelled brass cannon, two finely detailed clinker built boats and a long boat stowed amid ship.

History of the Volage:

March 1807 Built by Chapman of Bideford and launched on the 23rd March.

October 1807 Under the command of Capt. Rosenhagen captures ?Succes? a French cutter.

July 1808 Captures the French sloop ?Requin? off northern Corsica.

March 1811 Under the command of Capt. Phipps Hornby, saw action in the Adriatic, fought at the Battle of Lissa and drove off a much larger French ship. Following this victory, Volage was sent to the East Indies under Captain Mackay and in 1814 was serving on the Halifax station during the War of 1812. Her last active commission was in 1815 in the West Indies before returning to Britain.

January 1818 She was sold on 29th January.

This model is so precisely constructed that it is probable that it was specially commissioned by an officer who served on ?Volage?. Large models of small frigates are rare and unusual.

Overall length: 26€
Height (including baseboard): 22€
