Royal Louis Model ship

On his visit to Toulon in 1683, the English naval engineer Edmund Dummer described the Royal Louis as “a great ship and glorious in her first carving, no doubt; but to my judgment not of good proportion, nor good workmanship, her figure under water I know not, nor is that above to be admired”.

The threedecker ROYAL LOUIS of 1780 with her 122 cannons was one of the prominent first rate ships of the line in the French royal navy. The ship represented a high point of technology development in ship building.

That excellent model of the ROYAL LOUIS is a very beautiful piece of art. The ship’s power, the elegant lines of the hull and the impressive rigging are exquisitely shown in the model.
