“HMS Marlborough”, an exceptional silhouette on glass of this ship and other rigged vessels with stylised water and wonderful detail. There were a number of vessels so named, but this one probably carries the following detail: A third rate (class) Ship of the Line, built in 1767, fought in the American Revolutionary War. Damaged at Battle of Glorious 1st of June 1794, wrecked in 1800. Also fought in Battle of Ushant in RN vs Revolutionary France. A 74 gun vessel under the Captaincy of Captain Berkeley. Probably dated to early C19th, but could be earlier during the life of the vessel. Unsigned, but by the same hand similar to HMS Foudroyant sold at Sotheby’s Nelson & Napoleon sale 05/10/05 for £5,400 bid price. In original rosewood frame. Carriage will have to be by mutual arrangement.
