Ship diorama - St Martin Brig Newlyn, Cornwall 1887.  This is a handmade cased model of a ship in choppy waters and I would imagine it dates to the mid 20th century.    It is very unusual.   I have done some research and it looks to commemorate a shipwreck off the isles of Scilly around that date.  The case is of planked construction and the interior has been hand modelled, carved & painted.The boat itself is of timber construction.  The case is glazed with a heavy  glass and the whole item can stand alone or hang on its back wires.
