English Sailor's Woolwork of a Royal Navy Ship,
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.
