Sailor's Woolwork (woolie) of a Royal Navy Ship, Circa 1865.

English Sailor's Woolwork of a Royal Navy Ship,

Circa 1865.

The sailor's woolie has a wonderful serenity to it as it depicts a Royal Navy ship, probably a square-rigged sloop.  The ship is anchored close in to shore, a jack flag on her bow, a ladder into the water can be seen on her port side.  Her rigging is extremely well done with cotton and silk thread and a White Ensign flies off her stern.  On shore is a fort flying the Union Jack with a distinctive red bricked building at her entrance with a long path leading to the shore.  Two small sailing vessels can be seen nearby.

This design is often used for a Sailor's Return or Farewell but here there are no figures present.

Dimensions: 17 1/4 inches x 24 1/2 inches wide; (Sight: 13 1/4 inches x 20 1/2 inches)
