Object history
In the 1938 report on the Chatham Dockyard Collection. The carving is listed as coming from HMS 'Cleopatra', but this attribution was subsequently queried. As the Royal Navy never had a ship with the name 'Queen Anne' it is impossible to say with any certainty from which ship she came.
