(Nautical Photography)

Photograph portrays a three-masted sailing ship, under full canvas; framed and glazed; very tiny additional ship visible in distance; approximately a dozen crew members visible on deck; no ship name visible, no date but circa 1890 or so and flying Belgian colors aft; 16 3/4" x 28" visible image; approximately 25" x 36 1/2" framed size; old brown wood frame, probably contemporary with the piece; paper backer; old matting; a fairly clear and well-composed nautical image; probably the largest hand-colored photograph we have seen; some wear and scraping to the frame, still very solid; a little discoloration to the right side of the matting board, unobtrusive; unexamined out of the frame; in very good condition, an interesting nautical photographic image in a very large format. Very Good (Item ID: 18835)
