Model of a ship’s galley, Anonymous, c. 1799 - c. 1820

wood (plant material), h 37.7cm × w 48.8cm × d 37.2cm. More details

Food was prepared in the ship’s galley. This model represents how a galley would have looked on French naval ships from around 1799. One side was used to cook for the officers, the other for the rest of the crew. The ideal of equality promoted by the 1789 French Revolution clearly had not yet extended to the French navy.
