Circa 1905 HMS Britannia inkwell. This inkwell in ship's capstan form features a brass plaque that reads "MADE FROM TIMBER REMOVED FROM H.M.S. BRITANNIA CADET TRAINING SHIP AT DARTMOUTH 1863 - 1905." In the 19th century, Britannia Royal Naval College was essentially comprised of two wooden ship hulls moored in the River Dart, which is where the students would be housed and trained to be future Royal Navy officers. The college erected campus buildings in 1905, which is when the hulls would've been disassembled and this inkwell made. Price is firm.
