Portrait of the 'Charles'
The 'Charles' viewed from before the port beam with the lower masts lightly sketched in. A flagstaff at the mizzen top suggests she was unrigged when drawn. On the broadside she carries fifteen guns on the gun deck, fourteen on the middle deck, fourteen on the upper deck, and five on the quarterdeck; there are none on the forecastle and the poop armament is not visible. She has square decorated ports and a lion figurehead. This is one of a group of similar pencil drawings (PAH1843, PAH3909, PAF6564, PAH1844, PAH1845, PAH1846 and PAH3910) all of which show ships high out of the water, without guns, and possibly made while they were laid up in ordinary (reserve).
