Model of the
shipwreck in a bottle
On March 6, 1886, the Oregon
departed Liverpool and steamed for New York. At 4:30 AM, March 14th,
on a clear Sunday morning, the Oregon was jolted on her port side while
running at full steam only five miles off Fire Island, NY.
Although there were many conflicting reports of exactly what caused the
accident, it has been accepted to have been a collision with the three masted
schooner Charles R. Moss of Maine which was reported missing
Folding smoke stacks as well as
folding masts allow the model to fit inside the bottle.
This ship will be depicted
sinking with her stern rising above the waves. Model
includes propeller and rudder.
This model was designed with a
removable upper deck. All of her rigging folds back so the
tiny ship can be squeezed through the bottles neck.

According to Terry Butler
Pres. of the SIBAA -
( Ships-in-Bottles Association of America.)
I must have 50+
books on the subject of Ships-in-Bottles. This became
the most recent book in my collection and I put it as
one of my favorites! It is all in FULL COLOR with many
illustrated instructions for every aspect of ship
bottling. I was surprised at how much info was packed
into the soft cover 188 pg book, and how much I learned
from this one that I hadn't from my other SIV books. No
matter what your skill level, i believe anyone could
learn something new from this book. I have both of Dan
Berg's books. The other is geared more for beginners.
This one would appeal to ALL ship bottlers or beginners.
This is easily MY favorite of the two books.
