A naval snow
This ship portrait shows the vessel in two positions, port-broadside and port-quarter in the distance. She is called a snow rather than a brig, because her gaff-sail is laced to a little jigger-mast which is stepped aft of the mainmast. With her jack and commissioning pendant she is clearly naval, presumably a transport or supply vessel bought or hired by the Navy, but not a fighting ship. The background appears to be Tilbury Fort, opposite Gravesend in the Thames.
