Looks pretty to me. I noticed the hull looking like a real sailing ship hull, and found out she was indeed built as one. Found this website devoted to her: http://www.oosterschelde.nl/welkom-op-de-website-van-driemastschoener-Oosterschelde.html

Hi Stein, Many thanks for your information will have a look later.
I knew you would be watching and refrained from calling her a clipper, although she has clipper type lines.She certainly is a bonny looking ship.
All Best

You lucky so 'n' so she was in Belfast for the Tall Ships Race but we never had the delight of seeing her with the wind in her sails.Beautiful photograph of a beautiful ship.

Thanks to both for thoughts and info. I have just posted a copy of a postcard showing the Malcolm Miller which was designated a topsail schooner and I believe may also carry the further identification of being square rigged on the foremast.
Apart from the mizzen mast on the Miller being bermudian rigged the sail plan is the same.

All Best
Davie
