RARE 1940s Matson Travel Agent Promotional Model of the S.S. Monterey

A special, unique and very hard to-find 1940s promotional model of one of Matson Liner’s most famous ships, that would have been used at a travel agent’s office to give travelers an idea of how the ships were laid out.
Materials: The entire ship is made of wood, with a heavy composite-board back.
Measurements: 40 1/2″ L x 2 3/4″ W x 11″ H
Condition: As shown. Some minor scratches and scuffs to paint.

SS Monterey was a luxury ocean liner launched on 10 October 1931. The ship was completed April 1932. The Monterey was the third of the four ships in the Matson Lines’ “White Fleet”, which were designed by William Francis Gibbs and also included SS Malolo, SS Mariposa and SS Lurline.
