Arsenale di Venezia

This great ship measures 66 m. in length and 3 bridges were completely furnished by us. Its shipmaster had conceived of it as a large toy. Indeed — a large eye has been etched in the bow of the grey hull and guards the sea, as in the ancient Greek vessels. The bridges are in green and the masts in yellow, while the interiors feature an entire guest bridge in mahogany. The back side of this card displays a picture of the dining room in pear-wood. The large 14-seat central table possesses a surface that recalls the ocean surf and was realized with curved inserts of white ash embedded in the pear surface.
