I received by post a small metal tobacco tin containing a petite mechanized ship. No information was provided regarding its history, except that it was acquired from a dealer in Portobello Market, London. Strangely enough, no one has ever seen anything like it—this includes all the specialists you might know.
When something like this comes across your desk, wouldn’t it be great to see it back to it’s full glory?
That exactly what Brittany and her friend did. Detailed over three blog posts they detail a journey that brings light to a small piece of history.

And don’t forget it’s also a musical box playing ‘God Save the Queen’. – The Fairy Ship
