The “Merry Widow” provenance on bottle dates to 1865, condition is excellent. Easily a museum piece if it has not been. This is built by mystery builder I have yet to be able to trace down, however the build is far advanced and 99% superior to anything on the market. I have had several of this builders pieces, his signature is always provenance on the bottle, his extensive rigging, also his use of three different words along with exclusive handrails around the cat walk. I have a couple of his ships in my private collection. She’s in a 12 inch bottle, unfortunately when taking the pictures she was put on the stand backwards. So it will fit the stand properly. This could easily be the flag ship of Any Collection.
