Presented is a classic painting
of an unidentified full rigged clipper ship under all her sails, but her furled mizzen course, and all her tops'ls.
She is close hauled on the port tack and slicing through good sized seas. There are two others ships
faintly visible in the background.. From the truck of all her masts fly a streaming pennant, and the American flag, with an
indistinguishable number of stars, fly's from her mizzen. The sky is a brilliant blue with many fair weather clouds.
A truly majestic ship done in the China Trade style and signed by H. Parker in the lower left. The painting has
extensive cracquelure over its surface, and comes in a very heavy carved wood gilded frame and weighs an impressive 20
pounds. The frame alone would cost $500.00 to replace.

This painting was done by an unlisted artist in the style of classic China Trade works. He shows great skill
in capturing this art form and understanding clipper ships and their sails and rigging. This is a different artist than the
British painter, Henry H. Parker (1857-1930).
