Wells Collection

Wells Collection

Lieutenant Forrest H. Wells was a passionate collector of Asian ship models and his family bestowed his collection to Texas A&M, where they are undergoing cleaning and conservation care.

His collection encompasses 42 models of various provenances, sizes and quality. We hope to be able to study and publish each one of these vessels.

At this time we are inventorying, photographing, and matching each model wit the papers that came with the collection and sometimes shed some light on their provenance.  We hope to update this table regularly in the incoming months.

Below is a table with the models and their references.
