The rigging is very nice with standing rigging in black and running rigging in brown. The hull is black with detailing on the bow in gold. The deck has railing, cabins, hatches, and 2 lifeboats hanging from davits. The bottle is sealed with a cork and has black sealing wax covering the opening. The neck has a black Turks head knot around it. Attached to the neck is a tag hanging from a thread with the following: "Model of Clipper Ship made by W. McHardy, Oliver, B.C."
