Two most attractive copper engraved ships within one border. The first shows a Dutch hourque (or houcre) under full sail and nicely heeled-over. Manned by two sailors, the boat was designed to navigate the canals. The second is a side view of a fine yacht with nice rigging, side-board, and paneled raised stern.
