A Venetian Warship used against the Turkish in a bottle. This is a full hulled model with one mast in full sail. Nicely rigged and the sail has stitching across the lower part and thread "bending" it to the spar. The deck has a raised section in bow and stern with a ladder going up to each. There are 5 grated hatches on the deck. Two flags with crosses fly separately form the stern area. The ship has a capstan, several other deck features including an anchor. A full rudder is exposed. The bottle is tamper sealed with a cork and rope positioned around the cork and bottle open.
