Souvenir of the U.S.S. Crane DD-109

Picked up this neat little chalkware figure in a trade recently. Comes from via a U.S. Navy sailor that served aboard the U.S.S. Crane. The Crane was a Wickes-class destroyer built at the Bethlehem Shipyard and launched in 1918. It served as an escort to the George Washington in the Atlantic and was later commissioned to the Pacific fleet. Not sure exactly when this piece was made, but I would guess during or before WWII.
