The USS Oneida was built in 1809 as a brig of war with sixteen 24-pounder carronades and a 32-pound pivot gun forward, for service on Lake Ontario. In the War of 1812 she saw much combat action with the British and was kept in service of the US Navy till 1825.
There is a very detailed history of her available by the "The War of 1812 Magazine", Issue 19 December 2012 , and a short description of the USS Oneida in Wikipedia.
During the 18th and 19th centuries ship models constructed for the Royal Navy were referred to as admiralty models. They were principally constructed to depict proposed warship design. Many of these models illustrated the actual timbering or framing, showed the form of the hull and usually had great detail of the deck furnishings.
This model of the USS Oneida in style of an admiralty model is a very beautiful detailed piece of work. The ship model is 1 : 48 scale. Length is 69 cm, width 21 cm, height 22 cm.
The model is not fixed to the stand and can be taken out, i.e. for transport. There are some pictures, several views of the entire ship model taken from all directions, and several closer views of hull and deck. Click images to enlarge!
