The large American sailor's woolwork depicts a starboard view of an American battleship at anchor fully dressed with flags flying from her masts. The ship fills the wool completely. The sky still retains good shades of blue. The rigging is well defined and has a strong presence in the wool.

From the top of each mast flies the flag of the Kingdom of Sardinia, The Stars and Stripes and the British white ensign. At the stern of the ship is another Stars and Stripes and a US Naval Jack is at the bow. On deck, a collapsable funnel can be seen and two lifeboats. The back is the wool is visible through a lucite back.
