I bought this model at an antique shop for $5. It was attached to a crudely made lamp base. When I detached the model I found a label on the bottom of the ship stand that indicates the model was made by Vernon C. Brower, Pownal, ME. The model measures about 15" overall length and about 10" high. It is made of wood, but something denser than balsa. The rigging needs to be redone. I am a ship modeller so rerigging should not be a problem. I would like to know more about Vernon Brower who built this model and approximately when it was built. I have found a tug boat and fishing trawler that Brower also made online for sale. Any information will be greatly appreciated.
