Type: Oil Rig Platform
Item Type: Ornaments
Yet another thing the likes of which I have never seen before - similar idea to the well known Ship in a Bottle but this is an oil rig support platform in a bottle. The helipad is marked Stadive and I believe this was Shell's vessel - an emergency support platform that operated in the Brent Field in the 1980s. This is sizeable and heavy (weighs just over 3kg unpacked) measuring 13ins long and 6ins diameter. I am not sure who made the bottle which is marked in English "Not a pressure container" but it does look like a container for catering use and every possibility it will have been used on the vessel with a rig worker making this on board. This does appear to have been made using traditional ship in a bottle techniques as the bottle is intact.  This has no damage although the wooden cradle this sits on is fairly rudimentary and one of its cylindrical supports would benefit from being re-glued.
Please note that postage costs out-with the UK are very high due to this item's volumetric weight.
