Small section of wooden timber inside an acrylic cube signed by archeologist Margaret Rule, very rare provenance. 144 grams, 2" x 2" x 2". Henry VIII's flagship Mary Rose, sunk in the Solent north of Isle of Wight, remains one of the most important monuments of nautical archeology, from its discovery in 1971 to its salvage in 1982, its hull and artifacts still on display locally and still being researched and conserved. Until this little promotional piece came to us (a small cube of black wood with certification printed on the surrounding acrylic), we were unaware that any pieces of the ship were sold this way, and we are unable to locate another example for price comparison.
