SOLD: Tonight on Ebay, we have a great vintage Havana, Cuba collectible. The item is a rare, 1950s Sloppy Joe's Havana Shell Souvenir Boat. The boat was handmade out of shell, wood, and wire. There is a nut and screw that holds the body of the ship to the base of the ship. We cannot detect any damage or repairs to the ship. The shell has a beautiful patina. On the left bow of the ship is carved "Sloppy Joe's Havana". Before the revolution, Sloppy Joe's was a hot spot for rich and famous American movie stars. After the Cuban revolution in 1959, Americans no longer visited and the restaurant/bar struggled. Sloppy Joe's closed in Havana in 1965 after a fire. The ship measures: just over 11 1/4 inches x 12 1/2 inches x just under 3 inches.
