AN EARLY 19th CENTURY PRISONER-OF-WAR-WORK SHIP MODEL OF THE BRITISH FRIGATE SYBILLE
The three-masted warship is supposedly the French vessel Sybille which was captured by H. M. S. Rodney in June 1794, although at that time there was no warship of that name serving in the British navy. Constructed in boxwood with a copper-sheathed hull, the 40 gun frigate is shown flying the Union Jack, White Ensign and a red pennant. The vessel is supported on a contemporary stand with parquetry straw-work.
Model: height 9 in. by width 11 in.; Case: height 11 1/2 in. by width 17 in. by depth 6 3/4 in.
22.8 cm by 27.9 cm; 29.2 cm by 43.1 cm by 17.1 cm
