More about Newburyport's Landlocked Lady

Pictured above with the Landlocked Lady, created c. 1850 and attributed to Joseph Wilson (1779-1857), Newburyport’s much sought after wood carver for many of the city’s ships and homes. Originally fashioned for a ship in Wilson’s Strong Street shop, the piece was never purchased and served as an advertising emblem for many years. By the end of the 19th century, the piece was purchased by a member of the Barron family and moved to the garden of Miss Ellen Todd of High Street. In the 1950s, the Landlocked Lady was given to the Museum of Old Newbury. After years of exposure in the Todd garden, much of the original pine wood had rotted away. Restoration of the piece was completed by Edward Piel and son. It is on display at The Museum of Old Newbury, 98 High Street, Newburyport, Mass.
