19th century marine painting - dismasted
A diorama of two three masted sailing vessels on a choppy sea contained in a 12 inch high glass flagon having a turned wooden stopper inset with a Guernsey (Channel Isles) 8 doubles coin. This unusial piece of nautical folk art most probably dates from the 1930s so it is likely that the 1834 copper coin was used in centennial fashion - perhaps by a fisherman or sailor of St Peter Port - the likely maker of such a thing? We are not convinced that the wicker work adds to the general appearance but that is how it came to us and we shall leave it just so - thus giving the new owner the option to remove it or not.
