A large and handsome sailor’s woolwork or woolie, of a three masted British ship making good headway under full sail.
Mid 19th century.
With a lovely sense of movement and with good colours overall. The woolie is on it's original stretcher and is in good original condition.
In it's contemporary mahogany veneered frame, under glass. A little wear and tear to the frame consistent with it's age.
