Clipper Ship Highflyer

30 x 40 cm (15.5 x 11.75 inches)

The Clipper Ship Highflyer, 1111 tons
This ship was built at Blackwall in 1861. Nine years before, the Anglesey had been built and had proved very fast indeed. It is believed therefore, that the success of the latter ship probably influenced the Highflyer's design for, although frigate built, she was given extra fine lines. She was put into the far East Tea Trade, but her performances in speed were not sufficiently good to meet the intense demands of those competitive days. Her passages were averaging 130 days from Shanghai and she was therefore eventually withdrawn.

This lithograph was made in the 1950s by litho-offset on very high quality, thick paper. The paper is creamy white and in excellent condition.
