Model discussion:
"Model intended for Power boat just under 65ft. over all made in August 1914 by N.G.H. Scale of model 1/24th. ..." (Source: Herreshoff, Nathanael Greene. Handwritten text in offset booklet HH.4.45.2, no date (ca. 1919).)

"#370p Tyara (1919) was added by CvdL to the list of vessels built from this model, both, because she was listed in offset booklet together with other vessels built from that model and because the index in the 2004 Guide to the Collection lists Tyara as having been built from this model." (Source: van der Linde, Claas. 2008.)
"Petunia was built for H. L. Tiffany, there was no yacht Tiffany." (Source: van der Linde, Claas. 2008.)
