Desk Set made from teak wood salvaged from HMS Collingwood

It has a brass plaque confirming the provenance and below another engraved "With the compliments of C.W. Kellock & Co. London & Liverpool". C.W. Kellock were one of the leading shipbrokers established in 1850 and still in business today. Several Royal Naval ships have been named Collingwood but it seems likely these timbers came from the battleship launched in 1908, served at the Battle of Jutland and was broken up in 1922. The two wooden pots may have originally held ink but if so are now lacking the ceramic liners and covers. Measures: 11" x 8" (28cm x 20cm)
