Description, including signature and date
This is another of the little round bottle ships, some of which say soldier's or sailor's home in them. This one has nothing hanging from the stopper like the others have (whatever was there is missing), and no writing at all, but it was found in Dayton, OH, where one of the earliest National Homes for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers was. Links to others probably made by the same artist:

A red, white and blue ship with doll suspended in a lifeboat

A ship with a "Soldiers Home" Barrel hanging from the stopper

A paddlewheel ship with sailors in a suspended lifeboat

A ship with a doll in a lifeboat named "Daisy O"
