You are looking at a Nautical Half Hull On Oval Wood. This is a half hull model ship also known as a “half hull” or “half ship”. They are wooden ships models showing only one-half of a boat’s hull without the riggings or other fixtures.
Before modern technology, half hull model ships were constructed by shipwrights to plan a ship’s design making sure that the ship would be symmetrical. These half hulls were exact replicas mounted on aboard. In modern times, half hulls are constructed after a ship is completed to be used as nautical art. This one in particular was placed on a nice oval shaped piece of wood.
This nautical piece of wood art would look great anywhere you have other nautical items!
