Not really our area but...
If the hat has a name on it, it post dates the ships on this site as it belongs to the mid 19C at the earliest.
There was an Windsor Castle launched in 1858 which may be your ship.
The ring I have no idea

Good morning
Herewith I would like to know about the little sailor dolls
I bought the original very very old sailor doll. On the hat in front says Windsor Castle
Very very excellent condition.
Blue sailor suit on
looks like the little doll has never been touched and still full of dust
to afraid to dust or clean. No marks at all on the hat or little beautiful face.

Please give me more details about this little sailor man.

Nr2 I also have also bought an original safety ring for the sea to safe people from sea.

Kind and warm regards
