I have purchased six of these similar ships in bottles from England obviously built by the same builder who is anonymous.
This is one of his earliest builds. Definitely museum quality, I can relate to this builder due to the hallmarks that he leaves in the bottles, number one is the buoy, number two are the seagulls floating above the water on the starboard side.
Masterfully built and will stand up against any Ship In Bottle I have seen. The other ones by this builder sold for no less than $479, this one can be yours for 399, it is above heirloom quality.
