Britannia Royal Naval College Dartmouth - Trench Art For Sale


HMS Britannia Royal Naval College Dartmouth - Trench Art This "page turner", or very long 16 inch letter opener, is made of timber taken from HMS Britannia, the old wooden ship that gave it's name to the Britannia Royal Naval College, Dartmouth, Devon. HMS Britannia was a 3 decked wood sailing ship moored on the River Dart and was the initial Officer training establishment of the Royal Navy between 1859 and 1905. The page turner is made from a single piece of shaped hard wood and is in good condition for it's age with no serious wear or damage. It is 16 inches long, 1 inch wide at it's widest point, and ¼ of an inch thick. It has a small brass plate on the handle which reads. "Made From Timber Taken From H.M.S. BRITANNIA". The present shore based Royal Naval College Dartmouth was opened in 1905. In 1909, the old wooden HMS Britannia became a hulk and was sold for scrap in 1914. She was broken up by Hughes Bolckow at the Port of Blyth, Northumberland in 1916. This item probably dates from about that time, 1916.Buyer to pay for postage please which will be £4 within the UK. I will ship world wide.
