POA

An exceptionally fine condition, highly detailed and exquisitely finished sailor's woolwork picture of an 18 gun sloop of war passing in review, the rigging festooned with nautical signal flags, the mastheads sporting the ensigns of the admirals of the white, the red and the blue. The ship is portrayed in a vignette floating on a finely worked patterned sea, surrounded by a victor's laurel wreath and surmounted by a crown jewelled with real seed pearls. With accompanying national flags and ensigns framing the vignette, the flagstaffs adorned with silken tassels. In antique, probably original, maple frame. English c1850
