Auctions | Sail Sale

For those interested in passive, yet expensive war games, Christies's is auctioning off this late 18th century French POW ship model of The 74-Gun HMS Ajax. It's got deck details, a fully articulated hull (made of bone) and bow with figural masthead and is decked cannons on the port and starboard ends and two lifeboats.  It also comes in a pretty nice case.  Est. $4,000 to $6,000.
