    The Lord of the Isles was the first iron-hulled tea clipper, built in Greenock in 1853. She served in the tea trade until 1862, and also made voyages to Australia.[2][3] She is known for a record passage between Greenock and Shanghai, and for her close finish in the 1856 Tea Race from China to England, docking in London just ten minutes before the Maury. This race was the basis for the plot of a 1927 movie by Cecil B. DeMille The Yankee Clipper

    The box also caters to collectors of African-American 'folk art' although the depiction has racist & demeaning elements. Hopefully most of us have evolved well beyond this period of demeaning sentiment.

    A very unique, rare collectible.
