Framed oil painting of the tea-clipper ‘Taeping’, which was commanded by Captain Donald MacKinnon, Heanish (1827-1867), to victory in the Great China Tea Race of 1886. The painting was probably made in Hong Kong by artist Lai-Sung, who created many similar paintings of sailing ships during 1850-1885.

The two images are of the painting before and after restoration by Egan, Matthews & Rose, Dundee (© Egan, Matthews & Rose 2022).
