Item Description

Antique 19th Century original oil painting.

A ship is ablaze burning with flames and there are lifeboats attempting to rescue the crew. There is a stormy sky and the sea is choppy. The scene is illuminated by a break in the clouds.

There is an inscription on the wooden stretcher for the canvas which we have partially deciphered, ‘The burning of the ship _______ ______, ___ _________ from Cochin to Jordan, 1875 R. Ellison.’

In its original chunky gilt frame.

The painting itself is in great vintage condition with no holes or tears to the canvas, the painted surface is also very good. There is a little wear around the edges of the frame but other than that it is also in good order.

Overall measurements: 52cm x 40cm x 6cm.
