The characteristic blue shades of this painting indicate its Chinese origins, probably painted in Canton. The schooner ‘Rosebud’ (the first of its name) was built at Peterhead by Carnegie & Matthew for John Collie and launched in 1869. The vessel was used on the South African and Far-Eastern trade routes. Found to be too small, the ‘Rosebud’ was sold to Australian owners in 1875.
