This fabulous pencil drawing depicts two U.S. navy warships of the early 19th century. The ship on the right is no doubt the USS Constitution and the much smaller vessel on the left also flies the U.S. flag and appears to have the profile of a modest sized schooner. Each flies a flag in the style of the Betsy Ross flag of the 1780s with the stars arranged in a circle, suggesting the artist either dated from this period, or more likely, was simply depicting the Constitution in use during this period. This work has been framed under glass, apparently for most if not all of its lifetime. Portions of a Boston Herald edition from 1882 was found under the wooden back of the frame, suggesting the work likely dates from around that year. The drawing is in excellent condition, with no sign of foxing or moisture damage. Sheet measures 14" x 12.5" and the drawn image measures 9.5" x 9.5". Frame measures 17.75" x 16" x 1". This works is unsigned.
