About this object

Needlework shows the Sea Cloud in full sail sailing to the left. It is painted white and seen broadside, flying an American flag on its stern. The background shows a wide expanse of light blue sky, and the water is greenish blue with waves. The edge of the scene is outlined in simulated gray rope and bordered by a wide tan band which contains crossed flags, naval stripes and ribbons and an inscription.
