A woolwork picture of HMS 'Northampton' 1876. A port broadside view of the vessel at sea. The vessel is wearing a White Ensign with the naval signal flags 'QDL' hoisted at the mizzen; these details are worked in silk. The sails are padded, and the picture is embroidered in long and short stitch with the rigging made from button thread. The blue of the sea and sky is very faded. The embroidery is mounted in an oak frame. HMS 'Northampton' was a 16-gun, twin-screw iron cruiser, built by R. Napier, Dalmuir. She was launched on 18 November 1876 and sold in 1905. She was a flagship on the North America station until 1886 when she was refitted. She was then placed in reserve but still took part in manoeuvres until 1894 when she became a training ship.
