The Venetian Gondola, though now almost exclusively a tourists form of travel, once ruled the canals of Venice. Estimates place the numbers at eight to ten thousand gondolas during the 17th and 18th centuries. There are just over four hundred in active service today,

Bewilder and Pine, in expanding its HO scale series of buildings and curiosities, is proud to introduce the Venetian Gondola. We will be listing a number of unique and OOAK handmade and hand painted buildings patterned after traditional abodes found among the archipelago of one of the worlds most amazing regions. . . Venice, Italy. And how else would one move through a miniature landscape of those buildings? In a miniature gondola of course!!!

The gondola will be shipped in it's very own secure gift box as shown, with a brief description of the history of the gondola and a backdrop of the colorful Burano houses of Venice.

The Gondola is hand formed and carved from premium polymer clay then hand painted with acrylic paints and each one is given a gondolier (HO scale figure with handmade steering oar) and one or two passengers (buyers choice). It also comes with a striped mooring pole (custom colors upon request)

The listing includes:

One handmade miniature Venetian Gondola
One gondolier with steering oar
One handmade striped mooring pole
One or two passengers

Customizations

Each gondola is crafted individually by hand., The gondoliers have different poses and the passengers will vary from order to order. The mooring poles also vary in stripe colors. If you have a preference in male or female passengers or wish custom colors on the pole, an extra passenger or a seated couple, please convo us for pricing and with your specific requests and allow extra time for that customization on your order. (In most cases, a day to three before shipping)

The Gondolas are approximately 5 inches long by 1 inch wide and are about 1 3/4 inch high at the gondoliers head. The mooring poles are about 2 1/2 inches high.
