Model of a Zeesboot

amber, Ribnitz-Damgarten around 1980, height: 55 cm

The “Zeesboot” is a typical fishing boat used on bodden and Baltic Sea waters close to land. The model made of amber is a work from Horst Froese (1921-1997), an amber turner who trained in Danzig. He worked for the nationally-owned enterprise Ostseeschmuck Ribnitz-Damgarten and was often commissioned to produce representative gifts from amber.
