This bottle was made by the same artist who made the 1917 bottle listed under Bottle ID 848. On the 1917 bottle the date of the model is written on a church steeple. On this bottle, "1919," the date of origin appears on two towers. The flag on this 1919 bottle is United Kingdom where the flag made by this same artist on his 1917 bottle is German. The flag is on both the ship and in the diorama. This bottle is more complicated and has two tug boats. Extremely clean design and execution by artist, a superb master of his craft. The bottle is made from seamless injected blown glass mold with collar on neck added afterward. Numerous almond-shaped bubbles in glass. Beautiful hand-painted and hand-carved three-tier diorama enhances the ship inside the bottle. In mint condition. From the collection of R Michael Owens (Rmyklo).
