  1. Greetings fellow ship nerds! I inherited my family's ship in the bottle and I could really use some assistance dating the piece. It's been in my family for at least 5 generations, but I have little family history other than my great grandfather brought it from Ireland around the turn of the century. There are 25 sails and four flags-the top and most identifiable being the Fa signal flag T or 3 (could also be french flag, but doubtful), I believe signal flag 1, Signal Flag B, and maybe 4. Does this have meaning? Regrettably I do not have pictures of the pontil, as the ship is at my office which is under quarantine. So again primary questions- Age? Wood Material? Ship information? Care and Preservation? Value (insurance purposes)? Thanks! Jim
