Preussen - Bottle #86
Date Added: 01 October 2005
Very well made diorama in a 10 liter bottle featuring the ship Preussen sailing past a village sitting on a cliff. The sea is choppy with numerous whitecaps. The ship has 5 masts and 47 sails. Wonderfully rigged with multiple shroud lines and multiple beads used as blocks. The deck railing around the bow and stern as well as a railed wooden walkway from the bow to the stern of the ship. There are multiple hatches, cabins, and other deck details. The village has a church, 7 houses and 8 large trees and two shrubs. The bottle is sealed with a cork, red sealing was and an anchor imprint. This is a very heavy model.
