Ships in Bottles

Description, including signature and date
This tiny bottle was probably made by the same artist as who made the several other larger ships in round "pumpkinseed" flasks. All probably date from the last quarter of the nineteenth century. Many of them say "Soldiers Home" or something like that in them, suggesting they were made by a resident in such a place, perhaps a veteral of the Civil War. Links to other bottles probably made by the same artist:
