This is a very well made model of a 5 mast Barkentine anchored near a town on a hillside. The ship hull is red on the bottom and white on the top with what appears to be "E65" written on the bow but it is unclear if this is what is written. There are 5 masts with the tips and the tips of the spars painted in white. The rigging is very nice. Behind the ship is a small steam tug boat getting ready to push the ship from the harbor. The Tug has 2 masts and 3 decks with a large red smoke stack coming from the 2nd deck. Toward the bottom part of the bottle are 5 buildings painted white with red roofs at various points on the hill. One of the buildings is a church. On the neck end of the bottle is another raised area as if to be on a cliff and there is a tall lighthouse painted white with a red top and below that is a small building attached to the lighthouse. The bottle is sealed with a cork and covered with at macramé covering. On the bottom of the bottle are raised "BN" and under that is "34."
