Chartres Canoe Model Paddles

Found some pics of another, earlier canoe model with some decorative paddles. These photos date from 1955 showing the "Chartres Canoe" dated to 1762, at the Musée des Beaux-arts in Chartres, France. Black and white only, but you can just make out the chevron style hash marks on the paddles.
