A satire of Emma Hamilton? A woman sits astride a donkey, urging it to run with a whip, looking for the 'English Admiral'. Her bonnet is topped with a warship with "La Victor" written on the stern. The donkey's braided tail is lifted high as it breaks wind. Nelson made H.M.S. Victory his flagship in May 1803, which it remained until his death at Trafalgar in 1805. Rare.
