    Hi was at my local Antique Collectors Fair week end gone and came across this not sure what it is the seller could only tell me it came from a relative who was connected to sailing ships . The seller said it had been picked up and put down lots of time during the day but no one could confrim what it is ? So any ideas help to identify would be greatly appreciated , it has John Williamson Whitehaven engraved on it .Could it be use for Map / Charts making ?
    . Thanks for any Help
