The Ceolacanth, a cannoniere a vapeur (a steam powered gunboat)
This is a model of a gunboat, similar to the ones the French used at the Battle of Yu Oc in Vietnam back in the 1880's. Didn't realize their involvement went so far back. More photo's of this model here. Model was built in Tennessee for a customer in England. Via Scott.
