Today's cheeky chappy is the figurehead of the ss Davaar.  Built by the  London & Glasgow Engineering & Iron Shipbuilding Co. and launched in 1885 as a passenger cargo vessel.  She was owned by the Campbeltown & Glasgow Steam Packet Co.

More details are available from the Clydebuilt database here.

There are also plenty of mentions of the Davaar in this publication about Campbeltown Steamers by P. Donald M.Kelly: Campbeltown Steamers - 2004
