After finding a green glass lantern at a table top sale, and acquiring a nautilus planter with a missing foot, I decided that I would build my interpretation of 'The Nautilus'.

All parts used are unwanted, scrap brass items, from candlesticks to old lamp parts.  The model is large and heavy, so an old battered empire lamp donated its marble and brass base to take the weight.

She is a little over two feet long, hope you like it.

Marvellous!

Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.

That is so nice - I particularly like the ship's wheel visible through the glass.

Yours,

I have piles of old lamp parts, why don't I make something like this?  I just need a brass shell...
