This half model represents the ship Staten Generaal, a naval vessel built in Amsterdam in 1795. The ship – which had 74 guns on board – was renamed the Washington in 1798 and the Princesse of Orange in 1799, after she was captured by the British Royal Navy. The ornamentation of the railings with angels blowing horns, trophies of weap-ons and stylized leaves is typical of the late 18th century.
