Royal Barges have conveyed Kings and Queens on the River Thames for Centuries. The Thames was a regular thoroughfare for the Sovereign until the middle of the 19th century, on state occasions or between the Royal Palaces of Windsor, Westminster, Hampton Court, Greenwich and the Tower of London.
The most recent Royal Barge was completed in 2012 to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. It is named Gloriana.
Modelled on authentic Royal Barge Oars, these oars are made of solid wood with a rich honey finish. The blades are decorated with spripes and chevrons. They are built in two sections and screw together in the middle. A great decorative piece which can be displayed on any wall, anywhere. A perfect gift for any river enthusiast or patriotic person.
