Believe it's purely decorative,the rocking motion would simulate it sailing,especially as the sails and rigging would move in rhythym.
Expensive toy to lose.

Hi, It looks as if it is silver, if so you've got your work cut-out finding the hallmark.
It's a very nice find indeed and will need some very delicate handling Let us know if a hallmark is found. I'm already hoping it will be Chester and Charles Horner. Good Luck. ::g Regards ss47
I have Charles Horner as being Halifax, Yorkshire. I have found an almost complete brooch of Horners found locally and not many miles from Halifax.

When I look at this artefact I can't help but think of Richard Hammond's giant galleon present on the Vietnam special....
God gives all men all earth to love, but since man’s heart is small,
Ordains for each one spot shall prove beloved over all.
Each to his choice, and I rejoice, the lot has fallen to me
In a fair ground—in a fair ground—Yea, Sussex by the sea!

I like the shipwrecked look of the rocking galleon, is there a hallmark on the stern? ::g

What you need is a magic story Muddyknee,



I would honestly say that Bagpuss got me into collecting and therefore detecting I can remember I used to absolutely love the program, the mermaids obviously got me thinking of other things x; :D ::g

What an amazing find!
Out of interest how do you deal with a find like this? Who is it reported too? Obviously other than the land owners?
I'm new to this and want to make sure I know the ins and outs, I would be so proud of a find like this well done!
