Identifying an 1834 sailing ship

by Tom

I have a piece of stoneware with the name "John B. Wilson" and dated 1834 with a sailing ship incised on it.

Is there a way I could send a photo to someone to possibly identify the ship or the type at least?

Thanks, Tom

Hi Tom,
Are you on facebook? If not, register there and post your question on Han Lanser's wall, you can add photo's too; I'll try to identify it and post the results here.

Hi Tom,
You clearly have your reasons why you don't publish your e-mail address; mine are the same, so I suggested facebook. However, for your sake I opened a special address, easily to be disposed of, for this occasion: So send your pictures, please.
Regards, Han.
