Title

The Bark Isaac Rich

Description

Here the vessel Isaac Rich flies several banners, including the American flag and a pennant bearing a Masonic symbol, the square and compasses. The dark blue banner let others know that the captain or owner of the ship was a proud Freemason. This painting descended in the family of the ship’s master, William Bartlett Sheldon (ca. 1826-1903). A life-long mariner, Sheldon joined Burlington Lodge No. 32 of Burlington, New Jersey, in 1863.
