Delightful and very well made scene of a large wooden log raft moving down a choppy river. The raft is approximately 1 1/2" x 2" and is made from individually stacked logs. Aboard the raft are 2 men, one pushing the ship away from the shallows with a pole while the other man is steering the raft with a long pole rudder. The raft has a mast with one rigged sail and a life saver hanging below the sail. There are several pieces of cargo on the raft. The river bank shows a large white house with several windows, a door, and a red roof with a brick chimney with white smoke coming out. There are a couple of trees and a path along the bank. The bottle is sealed with a glass top with a German flag waving inside the glass top. The neck has rope wrapping. The model sits on a wooden blue painted base and the bottle is nestled in a large piece of manila rope. Built by Peter Zehe, a painter by trade.
