1869 Ships Wheel T-Shirt

Regular price £20.00 £20.00 Sale

Proudly display your love of the Cutty Sark with our navy blue unisex 1869 Ships Wheel T-Shirt.

This exclusively designed distressed motif features a silhouette of Cutty Sark with its date of launch (1869) surrounded by the ships wheel which is reminiscent of the stamped markings that were once applied to her cargo.

Cutty Sark was built in Dumbarton in 1869, designed to carry tea from China to England as fast as possible.

On 16 February 1870, Cutty Sark left London bound for Shanghai, via the Cape of Good Hope, on her first voyage. Commanded by Captain George Moodie, his log mentioned that she carried ‘large amounts of wine, spirits and beer’. The arrival of the ship at Shanghai, with ‘manufactured goods’, is listed in the North China Herald of 2 June 1870. Departing with around 1,305,812 lbs of tea on 25 June, she arrived back in London on 13 October 1870.

This T-shirt is exclusive to Royal Museums Greenwich and is part of our RMG Exclusives.
