Exceptional, probably sailor-made early 20th century ship-in-a-bottle diorama of a four-masted ship on choppy, white-capped seas, flying an American flag, with a tugboat on the starboard side and passing by a lighthouse with lightkeepers house on a sandy island. Palm trees on both sides of the lighthouse. Displayed in a square Booth's High & Dry Gin bottle with cork stopper. Measurs 10 inches in length. Beautiful original condition!
