Round, folding table made of timber from HMS 'Temeraire' on central turned post and tripod base. Brass inscribed plaque in centre: 'MADE FROM THE TIMBERS OF H.M.S. ARIADNE Commanded By CAPT. FREDERICK MARRYAT R.N., C.B. IN 1828.'
The timber was presumably removed during repairs in the 1820s (though she was massively refitted after Trafalgar), since the ship was not broken up until 1838. See AAA3174 (another table) and NAV0785 (barometer) both also made from 'Temeraire' timber. [PvdM 2/11].
