Scale: Unknown. A model of a double capstan displayed in an open-fronted display case with a horizontal shelf, made up of two slender planks, that separate the upper, from the lower, capstan. The model has been made from wood, stained and polished a light brown colour. It has been made in sections very similar to the depicted subject, the joints being either pegged or pinned. The model is mounted on its rotating point to the floor of the display case. The bottom of the upper capstan rests on the shelf, which here represents a stylised ship's deck. The case has been stained and polished a dark mahogany colour.
