This well-made piece of nautical folk art features a four-masted bark, a little village and sea beneath a painted sky.

This well-made piece of nautical folk art features a four-masted bark, a little village and sea beneath a painted sky.

The ship has some standing and running rigging, as well as the deck arrangement of a late-period merchant vessel.

The bottle is a foot long, sealed and finished with a varnished turks head at the cap. The ship within it is five and a half inches long.

While not a very old model, it is true to traditional ships-in-a-bottle done by sailors for the last hundred-plus years. It is signed with the initials ER and I would guess it to be fifty years old.

It is certainly one of a kind, and would be a welcome addition to any folk or sailor's art collection.
