This is a musical water globe depicting a plane launching off the deck of the aircraft carrier Midway. The tune is the rousing fight song, "Anchors Aweigh". The base isapproximately 4 1/2" across and 6" tall. When you shake the globe, a lovely cascade of glitter showers down. The engraved plate on the front reads, "Midway Magic San Diego". The Midway wasdecommissionedin April of 1992 and later, in January of 2004, traveled to San Diego where she was turned into a museum and memorial.
