A little steamship, perhaps plying the waters of the Mediterranean sea, perhaps on its way to you.
The background for this little passenger steamer has the look of a North Mediterranean coastline. A painted sky and a sculpted series of hills, mountains and little buildings frame the ship as it navigates a green sea.
Very simple at first glance, but then you find yourself looking at the little village in the hills.
I made a simple stand to display the bottle which is 11.5 inches long. I think it was made in the 1930s or 40s.
A good buy and an older example of the sailor's art.
