H.M.S. Cambrian. Old Aquatint Print. Artist: N.M. Condy. Engraver: E. Duncan. 18½ x 14½", handsomely matted and framed to 25½ x 21½". Nine expertly repaired small tears at bottom edge. Not examined out of frame, appears to be in fine condition.

Printed in the lower margin: "H.M.S. Cambrian, 36 Guns / This Print is respectfully dedicated by permission to Sir William Symonds, Surveyor of the Navy, / by his obliged and very obedient Servant NM Condy." Symonds, Inspector and Architect of the Royal Navy, spent much of the early and mid-19th century modifying ship design to meet the needs of a faster, more agile Navy. The H.M.S. Cambrian was probably one of the ships built or refitted under Symonds' command. A lovely piece, of a desirable maritime motif, enhanced by the framing.
Estimated Value $350 - 400.

Realized $207
