This skilfully made diorama of a three-mast early 19th century sailing ship at harbour with a raised landscape behind and cottages set into the hillside and opposite there is a small rocky outcrop with a light house. This rare example has been beautifully hand built and painted within a spirit bottle. This is a very difficult task to achieve particularly to this fine quality and detail. English circa 1930
