Newport Sloop – Hampton’s/Nautical decor
This boat invites one to tell the story of how it was found at the Marché Biro, avenue Michelet in Paris. It was the deep distressed black, white and red patina that attracted instantly. And the fact that the old gentleman confided that it was purchased only recently at Drouot, the one auction house in Paris. Better catch your breath; you might get carried away since it still has its AM bronze name plaque in place somewhere… Astounding in its very own way.
