This is a wonderful scene of the ship "Potosi" anchored near a large town.  The ship has 5 masts with double yard arms.  There is very detailed standing and running rigging with the shrouds in black and the remaining rigging white.  In the water is a large buoy with a red bottom, white middle and black top.  On the buoy are the initials "TC" for the maker, Theodor Carstensen. The town is full of buildings with 9 different structures including a church with a large steeple, windmill, lighthouse, government buildings, and more. The bottle is sealed with a cork wrapped in foil. The bottle rests on a custom stand with tiled polished Berne stones. Theodor Carstensen is a co-author of the book "Der Perfekte Buddelschiffbauer" and very similar ships to this model are shown in his book.
