A charming folk art automaton in the form of a ship bobbing along on the ocean waves. It is naively made of wood and has been handpainted. It works by turning a handle at the side to produce a simple movement of the ship moving up and down. It dates to the late 20th century. It is in good working condition with minor wear.
