Own a maritime icon with this Cutty Sark ship in a bottle. A perfect souvenir from the world’s fastest Tea Clipper.

Long, lean and beautiful, the Cutty Sark was built in 1869 for the tea trade but was made redundant by the completion of the Suez Canal, which made steam ships more economical. Instead, she earned her living, and incredible reputation for speed, in the long distance wool trade (from Australia).
