Hello from the San Francisco Bay Area

Newbie here... although I've had this model ship on a shelf in my house for almost 30 years. Bought it at a local antique shop at the time.  I was wondering if any members can tell me anything about it (what kind of ship, etc?)  and what it might be worth in its present condition. Measures about 18-20 inches at the waterline.  Dust and gravity have taken a toll on the rigging it seems.  I'll be selling it to someone local who wants to take on this restoration project. I have the metal wall-mount brackets for it also.

I hate to tell you this, but that appears to be a generic galleon probably made in southern Europe.  They were made as decorations like vases and people bought them for that reason.  Value will be pretty much what you can get for it as they really aren't worth much.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
