An English Oak pipe rest found with many other items in my attic. I realised what it was some time ago but only yesterday did I notice the inscription on the back , H.M.S. Eurydice. It was broken up in 1834 at Deptford dockyard just 4 miles from Woolwich Arsenal, where the builder of my 1920s Saskatchewan house originated.
It would have been a fitting of the ship rather than a souvenir made after it's break up is my assumption.
