The Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral in Rijeka preserves the work “Barque Hrvat” by an unknown author from 1874-1875, work on silk, PPMHP 100399. Just like Ban Mažuranić, the Hrvat maintained the lines between the Adriatic Sea and the Atlantic all the way to American cities such as Gloucester, New York, and the Antilles, but she also used to sail to Georgia. Her captains were Ivan Šepić, Ivan Randić, Franjo Golubović, Romano Foremporher, Mate Švrljuga and Sigismund Kopajtić. In the picture, Švrljuga is mentioned as the captain. The sailing ship is shown on the canvas with unfurled sails. She has three masts with square sails, and the gaff sail is only at the stern mast. The Austro-Hungarian flag flies on the stern mast. The barque also has jibs on the bow, connected to the dipping lug sails, and between the masts there are small staysails. A steamer is sailing on her port bow, and a smaller sailing ship sails on the stern quarter of the Hrvat. She sailed under the ownership of Bakar people until 1892 when she was sold at a public auction in Yarmouth to a new owner. The ship ran aground in 1892 near Yarmouth, Canada.
