Beautiful handmade wooden model of the American sailing ship and warship USS Constitution.

The original ship USS Constitution is a historic wooden frigate with three masts from the United States Navy. The warship was launched in 1797 and was by the then president of the United States, George Washington, named after the Constitution of the United States (US Constitution). The most famous actions of the USS Constitution came in the 1812 war against Britain, when the ship hijacked a large number of British merchant ships and defeated five British warships. This naval battle gave the ship the nickname "Old Ironsides", because the English cannons couln't pierch the ship's hull, made of oak with a maximum thickness of 65 centimeters. As a result, the ship became widely known. Since 1997, the ship has been moored in Boston harbor in the Charlestown district.
