Here's something that is very unusual that I received photos of yesterday My friend told me that a friend of his purchased this yesterday.

I wish I had a better photo of one of the two sides of the bottle. The front side is different than the back side of the bottle. My friend sent me a full size view of one side of the bottle and its contents. The other side of the bottle he only sent me a close up of his friend's purchase.

This is one of the coolest things I have ever seen. It's like the "ship in a bottle", but instead it has mini pickelhabes, swords, cavalry lances, and artillery shells inside the bottle instead of a ship.

Best Wishes,

Alan

Really cool. And very well done. If you have ever seen the dollhouses at the toy museum in Nuremberg you will have seen how good the German craftsman are at creating miniature worlds.

That really is amazingly well done and ambitious. Whoever did this was no beginner,

First time I've seen one.

Fascinating piece.

I can appreciate this as my father was a world class song bird carver. Sadly none of that talent accrued to me.

Thanks for posting Alan.
