Small wooden barrel (approx 5.5 cms high) with brass coloured plaque reading: "From the decking of the Mauretania. The old lady of the Atlantic". A very neat and pleasing object, and a chance to own a piece of history. The RMS Mauretania was the sister ship to the Lusitania, and was a great and much loved ship, broken up in 1935. This is in good overall condition, with a few minor nicks to the rim.
