Description

Unrigged model (scale 1:48). This 60-gun Fourth-Rate was built during the reign of King William III, and shows the elaborate carving and gilding of the Stuart period. She was the second Royal Navy warship to be named 'Exeter', and was involved in engagements against the French off Newfoundland (1702), in Quiberon Bay (1711), and at the siege of Pondicherry, India (1748), having been rebuilt betwen 1740 and 1744. The model was based on a set of lines of the ship in a portfolio of 1719.
