This is a diorama of a 4 masted Bark anchored outside a town.  The Bark rests is a bed of light green sea and the bottom of its hull is painted red and the rest is dark green except for white on the raised bow and stern decks.  The ship is displayed without sails and the masts and yards are well done and in good proportions.  The rigging is very detailed and well done. The deck shows the deck planking and there are several hatches and other deck features portrayed.  There is a faded flag flying from the stern rigging. It is unidentifiable but looks like could have strips and stars, possibly American. The town has 4 large white structures, two with black roofs and two with red roofs.  One of the buildings is a church with a tall steeple on the right side. Each structure has detailed windows and doors drawn on in black.  Three of the building have two chimneys with white cotton smoke coming out.  The church has a single chimney with smoke.  There is also a white lighthouse with a stone house at the bottom and a black ring around the top. The very top is painted yellow to look like the light is shining. Beside the lighthouse is a tall flag pole with rigging holding it upright.  A flag flies from the top but is too faded to be identified. A flag flies from the top but is too faded to be identified. There are 5 small trees behind the buildings. The bottle is unidentified except for "Contents 32 fl. Oz" raised in glass near the top. The bottle is sealed with a metal cap. The following was sent from the original seller: "These were part of the my Grandpa's collection.  He was a ham radio operator for the Navy in the 40s & 50s and was stationed in Alaska for most of his tour. I'm uncertain whether he got these there, but I wouldn't be surprised.  Absolutely fell in love with them years ago as a kid when me and my sis visited."
