Product Description

“SAILING THE SOUTH CHINA SEAS

 

        For a thousand years and more small traditional Chinese sailing junks have plied their way along the rivers and coastal waters of the Middle Kingdom carrying cargoes and people to a myriad of destinations.

        Even as recently as 30 years ago residents of (and visitors to) ultra modern Hong Kong could still see regular convoys of commercial sailing junks passing through the city’s spectacular harbour.

        Today, they are no more, all gone and consigned to the ship breakers yard and history.  Or are they…?

 

A RARE PIECE OF CHINESE

MARITIME HISTORY

 

        Here at King & Country we are in love with China’s history… and heritage and… sailing junks.  That’s why we’ve designed and constructed a series of 50 hand-carved, scale model junks to go with our “Streets of Old Hong Kong” series of miniatures depicting everyday life in the “Pearl of the Orient” at the end of the 19th. Century.

        Each model is expertly hand made and comes complete with full rigging, cloth sails and plenty of detail.

        This “first edition” is sure to be popular with collectors of this colourful K&C series so please reserve your model soon to avoid disappointment.

        Happy Sailing!

Even though there were originally only 50 were being made an additional 25 were also produced for a totoal of 75 pieces.
