Pocket Toy Ships

BY JACK HERBERT

WHILE THE TOP-OF-THE-LINE, expensive toy boats come close to being actual ship models, our smallest antique toys possess a charm and elegance denied the brutes. Most of our toys that will fit into one hand will also fit onto a shelf, along with others of the same size, making for a handsome display all in a row.

We’ve selected a dozen handy sized toy ships for you today, none of which are over 16″ in overall length. None have been available for many years, so our shelves could be called unique as well as elegant. All aboard!
