Schlüsselfelder Ship

The Schlüsselfelder Ship (German: Schlüsselfelder Schiff) is a ship-like German Renaissance table centrepiece. The carrack was made of gilded silver around 1503 in Nuremberg, Germany, possibly by Albrecht Dürer the Elder, at the request of the patrician Wilhelm Schlüsselfelder. It is displayed in the Germanisches Nationalmuseum in Nuremberg.
