Over the years we have sold a good number of portraits of 18th and 19th century ship's captains, often with the ship in the background. Occasionally we have found these in pairs, where the captain's wife has stayed together with her husband over the years. But we have never found one where the wife has a ship in the background, aswell as her husband, as a sign of his trade. Nor have we ever seen a ship's captain's portrait where he has a parrot on his shoulder making this a truly rare pair of portraits. These are a large and impressive pair of portraits.
