Henry Barlow Carter's Cabin

A pencil on paper drawing annotated to the back 'Henry Carter - Drawing of Father's Cabin'.

The drawing shows a Windsor chair on the left with a desk or table next to it and a large trunk beyond that. Opposite is what could be a washstand and a cannon ready to be pulled into action at its gunport. The image is a typical cabin with little space and some of that taken up by a cannon.

By repute, this drawing was with the Abbey Galleries in Whitby. It illustrates the interior of a cabin on board a fighting ship of the 1820s well, with the cannon as important, if not more, than the furniture. Mounted in a modern gilt frame with gallery provenance label to back. Circa 1825.

Image size is given.
