 Fantasy Cruise Ship From Quebec

$475CAD

PhilShadfly Folk Art Gallery and Antiques is located in Port Dover, Ontario
This elaborate and crazy fantasy cruise ship was created by someone named Phillipe (no last name), as a gift, or perhaps an invitation to go on a cruise to the lady who was obviously the focus of his affections named Rita. Enclosed on a little map of Baffin Island it says Rita Je T'aime, which means Rita, I love you (shown in attachment 7). It is dated 1987. This is one of those you have to see it to believe it pieces. It has a wonderfully detailed interior complete with sitting rooms, furnishings, a grand piano etc. Made from Plexiglas, wood, metal, nylon rope, and found objects. The boat sits on a stand complete with, carved lion's heads, ship's wheel and kitty perch. All I can say is that I hope that she went with him after seeing such a creation of devotion. The boat itself is 34" tall. It stands 63" tall on the stand. 44" long, 16" deep
