Child-made Wooden Barge with String and Nail Rails Plus Cannon!

Regular price $15.00

I'm a real sucker for things things like this boat, which I can just see its young maker, Harry, laboring over with great zeal, so eager to transform his vision into tangible form. And I think he did a terrific job! Using nothing more than wood, nails, string and magic marker, he constructed quite a barge, complete with rotating canon at the helm, and these great rails all around the perimeter. My favorite, though, is the underside, where he has written in big letters: PLEASE Do Not Put in Water! and also signed, Harry, once and a half! 

12" long x 2 1/4" wide x 2 1/2" tall. It's seen some play I think, with a few of the nails bent and a bit of wear to the strong, but all the better for it!
