Bottled Ship Builder

Well I had my first opportunity at ship in bottle repair.  It was entirely different than I expected I'd do with a ship in bottle repair but I got it back together.

I should have got a picture before I got it back together but when the gentlemen brought it over the mizzen main sail was floating around the bottle totally detached.  I had to maneuver it in place and glue it down.  Took two hours but I did it.  Funny thing with glass ships.  There no wiggle room.

The whole thing is glass.  Its a glass blown ship in bottle.  I'm not sure how it all came together.  The bottom of the ship is fused into the bottle it self.  The sails are all glass.  It looked like the glass is fused together when its still hot.  The bottom sail was fused to the sail above it.  To much bumping around broke the two apart leaving a loose sail.  I was able to get it back in place and glue it where it was fused originally.

Hi there,

We have a family trinket which is a gass ship inside a bottle/vessel. During a house move even though we thought we packed it well, it got knocked and the ship has broken away from the base of the bottle. Is there any way it can be fixed?

Many thanks

Lin

Neville I sent you an email yesterday. Lets see what we can do to help you.

Hello there,

                   I have a jetty scene in a bottle. I have broken the bottle.

I was wondering if you could advise someone to replace the bottle. I do not care if it is plastic & glued.

It has some sentimental value. I can provide photos.

Many thanks

Post some photos.  If your willing to go the plastic route maybe we can talk about doing some form of case you could do yourself.  Also if your comfortable with giving your very general location like city and state/province let us know what area you live.  We are far and few between but its possible there may be some one near you that can help.  If that doesn't work private message me.  I've done a few repairs now and maybe we can work something out.
