Really Beautiful, Awesome Ships in Bottles

I love these models.  These are all from  Ships in Bottles.   They are built by a couple that lives on a forty foot sailboat (Gabrielle Rogers and Stefan Auer).  After posting them I realized that one reason I like them had to do with the movement suggested.  Many ship in bottle models (which are not without  charm, show the ship only - no water or scenery.  I also like the clean simple glass pieces in which they are built.  Very beautiful.

  2. Yes I agree. After posting them I realized that one reason I like them is that the ships are all at sea. There is movement. Choppy seas, and wind. Many ship in bottle models, perhaps even most, show only a ship (which is not without charm, but doesn't seem to have the same appeal as the above).

  3. The Ship's are just amazing I think the shapes of the glass bottles & clarity of glass helps give that ocean effect movement! I like the old toy sets too!

  4. I have always wondered how these tiny ships are placed in these bottles. My dad was a collector of these cute ornaments.
