Original text on model:
"CONSUELO launched spring of 1883 for NGH scale 3/4" " (Source: Original handwritten annotation on model. Undated.)

Model description:
"#400 Consuelo, 28'6" lwl cruising yawl of 1883." (Source: Bray, Maynard. 2004.)

Model identification:
"Compare models 3 (#400s Consuelo), 1103 and 1203. Models 1103 and 1203 may well be preliminary models for #400s Consuelo. The smaller scale (1:24) of model 1103 would then suggest it to have been the first model, with 1203 being the second and model 3 being the final model." (Source: van der Linde, Claas. March 28, 2009.)
