House Flag of the Sea Witch
All ships carry House, or company flags, with Tea Clippers they became large affairs on what were certainly prestigious ships.
The company that owned Sea Witch was Howland & Aspinwall, an adventurous concern that built the first clippers and later the Panama railroad that crossed the isthmus where the Panama Canal now runs.
William H. Aspinwall was a great promoter of animal rights in America and sponsor of the Metropolitan museum of Art in New York.
