Ships In Bottles

The King’s Room also houses a wonderful collection of 26 model sailing ships-in-bottles (and even a ship-in-electric-light-bulb), known as the Dawe Collection. These highly accurate models represent many of the finest ocean-going sailing ships of the second half of the 19th century. The bottles are the well-known dimpled whisky bottles and you may wonder how the modeller accumulated such a large number for his collection.
