Cutty Sark is the world’s last intact clipper ship, now preserved in a spectacular dry dock at Greenwich, London. Long, lean, and beautiful, she was built in 1869 for the tea trade but made redundant by the completion of the Suez Canal, which made steam ships more economic. Instead, she earned her living, and incredible reputation for speed, in the long-distance wool trade from Australia.
The model represents the rich history that Cutty Sark possesses, and makes for an excellent conversation piece and collector’s item.
