A delightful and rare primitive Sailor Work Ship Picture of most unusual composition. The ship under full sail and flying Red Ensign on a flat sea, is depicted with a little fleet of eight smaller vessels. This classic work of British Maritime Folk Art is in exemplary original condition and retains the original cushion moulded and painted frame. Works of such authenticity and integrity are now very scarce in this genuine untouched condition.
