    LITERATURE:
    A. S. Davidson, Samuel Walters - Marine Artist, Coventry, 1992

    Named for the victorious Crimean War battle on 5th November 1854, the full-rigged Inkermann was built, probably as a speculation, in New Brunswick, Canada, and completed in 1855. Registered at 1,307 tons and measuring 214 feet in length with a 39 foot beam, she was purchased by Sinclair & Co. of Belfast and traded out of Liverpool under their colours until disappearing from record after 1870.

    This work, seemingly dated 1870, may have been commissioned to mark the vessel's retirement from the Sinclair fleet where she had spent the first twenty-five years of her career.

    We are grateful to Dr. Sam Davidson for his assistance in cataloguing this lot.
