What is it (small box on the deck with windows)

Recommended Posts


Wreaths (on English ships at least)  were no longer used on new ships built from about 1703 so this ship is likely 17th century.   The carvings are more ornate than would be found on ships built in the 18th century.  Do you have the name of the ship in the photos?

I'm not sure the front one (bottom photo) are windows but maybe a painted decoration?   


The rear (upper photo) I can accept that those are windows since the helmsman was more than likely there as there's no helm on the weather deck.  Windows there would make sense so he could see the sails, etc.
