Portrait of an English two-decker
Shown from the port quarter, including lower masts and bowsprit, with eleven guns on the gun deck, ten on the upper deck and two on the quarterdeck. The ship has square decorated ports and is probably one built during the Commonwealth. The disposition of ports is very similar to that of the 'Portsmouth' (PAH1841) and one formerly in the R.C. Anderson collection, (no. 13). The other early ships similarly armed in 1677 were the 'Dragon' and 'Hampshire'. Inscribed '1673' and signed in brown ink with part of the signature 'W.V.V.J'.
