Model HMS Victory

The sale of the unusual will always be the usual. Here's a ship made out of beef bones and hair that's expected to sell for £30,000. The sails are made of tissue paper, the rigging is made of human hair, and beef bones were used for the hull of the British Royal Navy Ship HMS Victory. It's 28 inches long and was made by French prisoners during the Napoleonic Wars in the late 1700's and early 1800's.

Implications - Other details on the Model HMS Victory include pull cords with bone finials to operate the ship's guns, as well as anchors, belfry, and ship boats. The Model HMS Victory was held in antique Dutch weapon collector Hank Visser's house prior to the auction. We hope he doesn't miss it too much.
