    Figurehead of the Diana, Cutty Sark Collection- Believed to be from a ship built at Pitcher's Dockyard, Northfleet, Kent in 1799. She went to the Arctic to search for Sir John Franklin's North West Passage expedition. She was lost in 1848. The figurehead was found in a garden at Bean, Kent. Would make sense since the Queen Commissioned Pirates.
