Please Note: Important Information. We have further information on the painting and subject. Circa 1796-1803. The boy, identified on the frame plaque as Master Honeywood, could be William Philip Honywood (1790-1831), son of soldier and Whig politician, William Honywood (1759-1818), who, like his son after him, served in parliament. They boy depicted wears a skeleton suit, high waisted trousers that button to a shirt, that was fashionable during the Regency period of 1790-1820. Boys wore these suits from the time of 6 years of age until 12, which corresponds to the age William Philip Honywood would have been when painted. Beechey was known to have painted members of the extended Honywood family, including “Captain Honywood” and “Filmer Honywood”. Other English artists known to have painted members of the Honywood family include Sir Joshua Reynolds and John Northcote.

SIR WILLIAM BEECHEY (British, 1753-1839) “PORTRAIT OF MASTER HONEYWOOD”.

Oil on canvas Housed in a period carved giltwood frame with presentation plaque Unsigned Note: Sir William Beechey was an English artist best known for portraits of the royal family and many famous and fashionable people of his time.

On account of his success as a portraitist and the royal commissions he received, Beechey was granted the honour of knighthood and elected a full member of the Royal Academy in 1793. In the early part of his painting life Beechey specialised in small-scale full-length portraits, such as this young boy holding a bow and arrow in a landscape. A portrait of Master Honeywood’s father, Captain Honeywood, also painted by Beechey, was sold in 1900 at the Fishcof-Blakeslee Collection auction held in New York. SIZE: 24″ x 20″.

This lot consists of 3 Naval Jacks, 2 dating from the Civil War with 35 stars, another with 38-stars with history. 1) 35 star is in poor condition, originally with hand sewn, double-applique, 7-1/2″ cotton stars. There are now some machine repairs on at least two stars and a newer rope hoist for continued use. 2) 35 cut-through 9″ stars adorn this Jack with a mix of hand sewn stars, with some having machine sewn outer perimeter, but not all. The large canvas hoist is hand sewn, as are the edges with two large brass grommets. Two large brass grommets are affixed to either end of the 5″ folded over hoist. Written on the hoist several times “D.G. Fort”. 3) 38-star was official flag with the admittance of Colorado in 1876 until 1885. 38-star Jack of the Tugboat “E. E. Frost”. The Frost has an interesting history being sunk about 10 years after this ensign became official. On October 1, 1899, the steamer NEW ORLEANS, coming into the harbor, had a collision with the tug E.E. FROST, outward bound. Capt. Louis P. Cole, was in the pilot house of the FROST, and was steering the boat. As the NEW ORLEANS struck the smaller craft her bow cut into the tugboat and the latter went to the bottom. Capt. Cole found himself in a perilous position as the boat sank beneath the surface. The door of the pilothouse had become jammed in the collision and Cole was imprisoned. Finally the pressure of the water on the outside became so great that Cole was enabled to get the door opened and float to the surface. As an outcome of the collision, Cole has filed a libel in admiralty against the steamer NEW ORLEANS for $10,000 and costs. The steamer was seized by a United States marshal several days ago, but has since been released upon the filing of a surety company bond for $10,000 by the owners of the vessel. 4) 48-star US flag, all machine sewn with with 48 double-applique 2″ stars. CONDITION: 1) Much fraying and reductions in bunting. Several stars repaired and a few stars are torn and pulled loose. Flag measures 68″ on hoist, 84″ on fly.

Hoist is shredded and only partially contains rope hoist in its sleeve. 2) Good overall, though there are reductions especially in stars as can be seen in photos.
