Next to sculptures of humans and animals, everyday-use items and metalworks, the Werkstätte Hagenauer also produced figurines of cars, trains and boats. Especially sailing ships were executed in different variants from the small nutshell tobig Viking boats. Those objects show the design skill of the Werkstätte Hagenauer in an impressive way and those models are very asked for by collectors.
This sailing ship is among the biggest variants that were produced by Hagenauer in the 1950s. The combination of brass, copper and wood can be recognized as a style element und lends this object an almost unique appearance. The tight sails and the slender bow of the ship convey the feeling of a fast and elegant sailing tour through the steaming waves.
