Very attractive display box constructed of wood removed from the hull of the USS Constitution during the frigate's historic 1927 restoration, measuring 7.25 x 4.25 x 2.5, with the box front bearing the original bronze plate, which reads: "This material was taken from the original hull of the U.S. Frigate Constitution, Keel laid 1794, Rebuilding 1927." The handsome box lid features a 2.5″ diameter bronze emblem with embossed image of “Old Ironsides” with its sails up, with raised text below: "Launched 1797, 1804 Tripoli, 1812 Guerriere, Java, 1813 Cyane, Levant, U.S. Frigate Constitution." Base of box bears an affixed period caption detailing the history and restoration of the USS Constitution, in part: “’Old Ironsides’ champion of American Liberty, is being completely rebuilt in the Navy Yard at Boston, Massachusetts. A floating relic, restored to her former glory, she will visit the ports of our country, an inspiration and a lasting lesson. In patriotism to all who see her.” In fine condition.
