“Figurehead of HMS ‘Thames’ , a 46-gun fifth-rate (frigate) built at Chatham Dockyard in 1823. It is a vigorously carved male head-and-shoulders bust, white-painted, of a scowling, bearded river god no doubt intended to represent the spirit of the RIver Thames. The base of the figure has a carved rope trim around it and the whole stands on an lettered black plinth. The ‘Thames’ became a convict ship in 1841 and sank at her moorings in Bermuda in June 1863, when the wreck was sold.”
