Description, including signature and date
The ship in this bottle is a cargo-type ship with two booms. The hull is black with white dots, and the decks are white with black dots and windows. The name ROMA appears on the bow. There is an elaborate town behind the ship, and above flies an airplane, and the ship has both American and Italian flags. A carved angel on a stick in the cork is signed "A. Figueroa", possibly the maker. It might have been made at the same time and on the same ship as the bottle directly above.
