HMS Hyacinth K84

HMS Hyacinth (K84) was a Flower Class Corvette built by Harland and Wolff and commissioned in October 1940.

Almost immediately after finishing sea trials off Tobermory she headed out to The Mediterranean where she spent all her active life patrolling the sea off Palestine and taking part in the convoys to Malta.

She had a highly successful anti-submarine career.

Botanical artist Nick De Maid collaborated with James Taylor to create this beautiful edition, further examples of his work can be found at nicholasdemaid.com.

This edition print recorded on fine art stock via a large format mimeograph and generally referred to as Giclée prints of premium quality. The paper is white 100% a-cellulose with a distinct textured surface and the premium matt inkjet coating more than meets the highest industry standards vis-à-vis density, colour gamut, colour graduation and image sharpness, while preserving the extraordinary touch and feel of genuine art paper. The editions depicted on Iconic Reserve are not representative of scale and solely for the purpose of suggestive display.

The edition comes with a Sterling Silver anchor with a minimum millesimal fineness of 925 which is not pierced through the print but is available on request. The print is also available without the anchor on request.
