Lot of two artifacts: a wooden mallet head with initials J.S. and display stand and a section of thick rope, ex-Colossus (1798). 570 grams total, rope 26" long x 1" diameter, mallet head 3" x 2-1/2" x 2. Two interesting artifacts, a serving hammer (mallet head) and a short section of thick, braided rope, from a ship which was homebound from the Mediterranean, loaded with Greek vases and wounded soldiers, when she stopped at the Isles of Scilly in a storm but parted an anchor cable and sank, famously salvaged by Roland Morris in the 1960s and 1970s but also by more modern efforts starting in 2000. From the Colossus (1798), with original certificates from the salvor, the mallet on a wooden plinth with plaque.
