Product Description

Van Ryper started his ship-modeling business in 1933 in Martha’s Vineyard.  The idea was straight forward — make handmade models in a very recognizable style.  The name is famous, and the models are outstanding.  But being 80-90 years old now, they are quite rare.  This is a Van Ryper model of CGT’s Lafayette of 1930.  It is in excellent condition.  The model was cherished by a collector all these years, and I was fortunate enough to buy his entire collection.  Measures about 9″ long.
