Hand made ship diorama

I came across this a few months ago at the weekend flea market on 24th street (between 6th and 7th avenues).   I don't know much about it.  It appears to be home made.  There are no significant markings on the piece (though I haven't opened it, and don't intend to - I don't want to damage or alter it).   Most of the ship dioramas I've seen are much larger.  (I'll post some in the future).

I think this one is well done... dark stained wood - nice, well proportioned ship and good details (like the water/waves).  I like the hand made look.. The ship masts look like they were made with toothpicks.

This will give you an idea of the model's size
