English Sailor's Woolwork of a Royal Navy Frigate,

Circa 1870.

The ship has an unusually coloured hull and the cannons are each depicted by a nail-head.  The rigging is in silk and cotton.  The ship sails on a rough blue gray sea.  All within a double frame, the inner frame in gold and the larger outer frame with a rope-twist design.
