This is a model of a Top-Mast Schooner sailing on a calm sea of blue in a 40 watt Phillips light bulb. The ship has a green bottom and the remainder of the hull is white except for a thin gold strip near the top. There are 2 masts with 9 sails flying. The sails have seam lines drawn on in pencil. A French flag flies from the rear sail. A banner with the name "Etoile" flies from the top of the front mast. The deck has 3 large cabins each in natural wood with a white roof. The bulb is mounted on a small wooden plinth outlined with manila rope. The socket end of the light bulb is tied down with manila rope and the other end rests in a circle of manila rope. This ship is one of several made by Marcel Escurat in the 1960's while he and his family lived in Paimpol in Bretagne, France.
