    • Vintage Antique Ship in a Bottle - One of a Kind!

      This is the most unique and intricate example of it's kind that I have ever seen, on line or anywhere else!

      It features a "Barque" type sailing ship in a harbor, as well as an extensive and highly detailed diorama, including a lighthouse, a smaller sailboat, and a steamer tug (or trawler?) with smoke. There is a steam train passing over a viaduct, (also with smoke), and many small houses/buildings, including a church. It's not just a Ship in a Bottle, it's an entire harbor and town in a Bottle!

      I cannot find the artist's name anywhere, or a date, but the bottle is a Canada Dry Ginger Ale bottle (29 fl oz, 11 3/4" long), which my research indicates was made by the Owens-Illinois Glass Co. in 1947, according to the markings on the bottom.
      It came from my Dad's estate, but I have no idea where, when or how he came by it.

      These photos do not do it justice - MUST SEE! Price is $325 FIRM.
