The famous Mississippi steamboats were widely used in traffic in the 1870 to 1920 era. Today they are regarded as a symbol of the American West.
The Mississippi steamboat model is a very fine, beautiful and decorative piece of work. It is 1 : 50 scale. Length is 110 cm, width 25 cm, height 56 cm. It is loosely set on its stand and could be placed on a flat surface as well. The stern wheel can be rotated.
The photos of this ship model were made in open air. As the
flag was slightly moved by the wind it is a little blurred in some of the
photos. This Mississippi steamer model carries the US flag in its
early 20th century modification of 6 * 8 stars
