Commander Eric Tufnell RN (1888-1979) - Maritime Originals for Sale

I still have (Dec2016) over 50 original watercolours by Commander Eric Tufnell RN: most of these are available only as originals, some as reproductions, the original having already sold (see www.maritimeprints.com).  THE LIST IS CONSTANTLY CHANGING as some are sold and are replaced by others so PLEASE ASK if you are hunting for a particular ship whose name does not appear either below or in the section in Maritime Prints.

Most of the titles are listed below and Tuffy's pictures are already well known in nautical circles. Unless stated (with first commissioning date in brackets), the paintings are of ships bearing that name in WW2 times. They are listed here alphabetically, are all signed by Tufnell & many are also inscribed by him. Most measure 11 x 8 ins (28 x 20 cms) approx; one or two are a bit larger. These originals - which are with very few exceptions in excellent condition & clean, unspotted, bright & unfaded - are on artist's board & are unframed or mounted (probably the reason they are unfaded).  They are £250 - £350 (including VAT) depending on the particular ship concerned (packing/postage is typically around £8 for UK Mainland addresses; but because they are not large they are very mailable all over the world).  PRINTS of these and dozens and dozens more are under MARITIME PRINTS (see Home Page).  Here is the current list (15 May 2017) of ORIGINALS held (which is alway changing as some are sold and new ones bought in):
