Bottle 900 - Sailor Building Ship in bottle
Date Added: 01 December 2014

This is a delightful bottle with a wonderful scene of a man in a bottle, building a ship in a bottle! The man is standing on a wooden planked floor and is dressed in an old "salt" or sailor attire with black pants, red and white stripped shirt, black hat and smoking a pipe. He stands at a table with a small bottle and a schooner ship inside the bottle. There is a bookcase with books, a ship's hull and rolled up plans under the case leaning against what looks to be a wire grate coming out from under the bookcase. An old style straw broom leans against the case and rope rope hangs from the side. The bottle rests on a wooden stand that is glued to the bottom of the glass. The bottle is not too old but is a great display model. It measures 5 3/8" x 3".
