Title: A model of the East Indiaman Seringapatam (1837).
Description: The 'Seringapatam' was named after a victory by British troops over Tipu Sultan, the ruler of Mysore in 1798, which finally gave the East India Company control over the south-west Indian state. She was one of the first ships to be built at the Blackwall yard in London after the East India Company lost its monopoly of trade with the East in the 1830s. The ships were known as 'Blackwall frigates'.
