"ORION Sloop 1870 by J.B.H." (Source: Original handwritten annotation on model. Undated.)

"Orion was built in 1869, not in 1870 as stated on the model." (Source: van der Linde, Claas. 2008.)
"#187002es Ianthe was added by CvdL to the list of vessels built from this model because she was built on the molds of Orion according to NGH's recollections." (Source: van der Linde, Claas. 2008.)
