This is the 5 masted schooner "Kapitan Heindorf" riding the high seas in full sail. The hull is black with a wide white stripe in the center. There are 10 gun ports along the length of the hull.

The deck is full of numerous features including 4 deck cabins, steering house, 4 hatches, red and green lights, capstan, davits, binnacle, and 2 lifeboats. One life boat is mid-deck and the other is suspended from davits extending from the stern of the ship. The rigging is very nice and the bowsprit has a dolphin striker. Blue skies with white cloud are painted on the inside back part of the bottle making it look like the ship is sailing in a strong breeze. It is flying the Belgium flag from the rigging on the stern mast. The bottle is the wine bottle labeled "Weinbrand Verschnitt" from the "Oriignal bahr bottle shop" Bremen, West Germany. It is sealed with a cork covered in original red foil. The bottle rests on a wooden stand made for the ship. The words "Western Germany" is typed on a label that is taped to the base.
