Bottle 354 - Bark in Bulb
Date Added: 01 October 2005

This is a nicely represented 4 mast Bark built in a light bulb and sailing on a choppy deep blue sea. The ship has a black hull with some white on at the deck line on the bow and stern. The ship has 4 masts with 29 sails and a British flag flying from the stern rigging. The tips of the mast and spars are painted white. The inside back of the light bulb is painted in sky blue with white clouds. The end of the light bulb has a Turks Head knot and the bulb rests on a plinth with raised curved piece of wood on one side with a circle cut in the wood to hold the socket. On the back of the light bulb is written "P.C. 1986." This is presumably the initials of the maker and the date the bottle was crafted.
