A Sailormade Narrative Woolwork

hover over image to zoom

A fine Victorian woolwork picture made by a British sailor of the Royal Navy, titled ‘Off The Eddystone’ and with swagged flags of allegiance. 

The scene shows us a busy sea around the Eddystone Lighthouse, Cornwall, the principal vessel flying the Admiralty flag from the mainmast having passed a Royal Navy Brig. There is a Navy Cutter following the brig and a small French boat in the foreground. This large narrative woolwork retains its original walnut veneered frame with a silvered slip. Circa 1860
