VesselsMary (1660)

Object details:

Object ID PAH1724
Description A portrait of the ‘Mary’, 62 guns, built 1650 as the ‘Speaker’, renamed 1660, wrecked 1703. The ship is viewed from the starboard bow, showing the bowsprit, spritsail topmast and half the lower masts. There are men in the fore shrouds. This is a spirited and accurate drawing rather confused with corrections. It was probably drawn as the ship left the Dutch coast with the Restoration squadron.
Date made 1660?
