This is pretty ancient and shows age wear.....moth activity by look of it to the lining of the picture. I'm uncertain as to how the ship has been made....looks to be a mix of paint and perhaps some Mother of Pearl. The caption mentions the ship as the Sister Ship to the LUSITANIA torpedoed in The Great War. Measures 8 1/2" x 6 1/2".
