  • Product Notes

    Rampley's pocket squares catch the eye and instantly make a conversation more high brow. This square's dramatic painting may have been a design for a tapestry and is dateable to the years immediately following the event. The composition appears less like a painting than as a formal design but no other contemporary image of the Armada conveys a comparable sense of the drama and colour of the confrontation between the two fleets. The Spanish galleass may be meant to represent the principal Spanish flagship, Medina Sidonia's 'San Martin', 48 guns, although by showing her as a galleass, when she was, in fact, a galleon, the artist has used poetic licence to emphasize her Spanish origin. This pocket square was printed, cut and rolled by hand in England.
