Beautiful Pen Thomas,
Incredible Burmese Teak Blank, Salvage from The R.M.S.Mauretania.
A real "Blast from the Past", a Vessel that played a significant role in WW1, after her Fast Record Breaking Atlantic Crossings.
Such a Significant piece of Naval History.
I also love the Weathered Plaque, displayed on the Triangular Piece of Teak, Pen Rest.
Who would have considered that a Piece from such a Significant Ship, that was Scrapped 84 years ago, would surface today, in the Extremely Capable hands of Thomas. To continue Life as a Magnificent Pen Blank.
Thank you Thomas, Keep up your discovering items of Interest and History.
Regards,
Brian.

I love the little metal plate that identifies the ship. It really adds to the feel of things.
