Two ships models of the 'Unicorn' (1762) by Krick and the 'Norske Löve' (1172-98) by Billing Boat
20th century

H.M.S 'Unicorn' was a 28-gun, Sixth Rate frigate of the Royal Navy . Originally ordered as a 24-gun ship to the draft of the French privateer Tyger. The third vessel of the Royal Navy to bear the name, the 'Unicorn', as well as the 'Lyme' which was a near-sister, were the first true frigates built for the Royal Navy. 

The three-masted warship 'Norske Löve' was launched in 1765. She was originally named after the Norwegian/Danish coat-of-arms, and was renamed the 'Øresund' in 1772. The vessel was used as a guardboat in the Øresund and other coastal waters around Denmark. The ship was deleted from the naval register in 1798.
