The 17th-century shipwreck, La Belle, represents one of the most significant stories in Texas history. Explorer René-Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle set sail to claim new territory for France in 1684. He missed his destination at the mouth of the Mississippi River, sailed into Matagorda Bay, and La Belle was lost in a storm in 1686. The ship was found 300 years later, and excavation began in 1996. The preserved hull of La Belle is now on view in the Bullock Museum’s Becoming Texas gallery.

This hallmarked, collectible ornament is a replica of La Belle when it set sail. Meticulously detailed, handmade, and 24K gold plated, it truly is a treasure. Proceeds support the preservation and exhibition of Texas history and educational programs at the Bullock Museum. Polish with a soft, dry cloth. Made in USA.
