The figurehead 'Jenny Lind' from The USS Nightingale (1851), originally a tea clipper & slave ship. Christened in honour of Jenny Lind, 'The Swedish Nightingale', a famous soprano, the figurehead ended up in the hands of a Swedish antique dealer in 1994. He spent 13 years researching its history. The Nightingale had undergone repairs in Norway in 1885, during which time the figurehead had been removed. The ship foundered in the North Atlantic in 1893.
