Great original copy of the Shipbuilder Magazine … this one dating from 1914 and completely dedicated to Cunard’s Aquitania. The covers and spine are a little worn but the interior pages are 100% complete and great… right down to the plans and color plates. If the Aquitania is your ship … this is a must have item. Many folks have these rebound with hard covers … this could be a great candidate for that. An absolute treasure!
Great Little tables from the Amazing little French combo colonial liner Tahitien which finished her days cruising as the Atalante for Paradise Cruises. As built the little lady had beautiful post war French Deco interiors .. and many of these elements like these tables survived right up until she was scrapped in 2005. Buddy peter Knego saved these tables as well as other items from the ship and they sold out almost immediately. I have decided to part with my pair … and I am sure they will go to a great home. From the patinaed wood construction to their glorious solid brass feet … these are stunning. Solid used condition just as they came off the ship. The shipping calculator will not be correct… I will need to quote shipping.
The Winston Chuchhill was a great little gem: a lovely combination of Italian Shipbuilding and Danish Design. I purchased this sofa from Peter Knego after he rescued it and 2 others from the ship when she was scrapped in Alang. According to PK, there were only 3 of these special 2 seater sized sofas ever created by Kay Korbing for any ship. One of the rescued sofas went overseas, one remains with PK in California and this last one can now be yours. In great structural shape, this will need upholstery and foam work to bring it back into its full glory. A very special Item! Shipping calculator will not be correct … I’ll need to quote this!
The Ornate covers play off the interior design of the magnificent little G Cesare … full of High Italian Renaissance … right out of locale palaces and domestic architecture. The interior pages are much simpler and cover all classes on the may 1927 voyage.
Great little booklet written in 1970 about the POL’s prewar Bartor … as well as some infor on her successor the second Batory (once HAL’s Maasdam). This has paper covers wrapped with a light cellophane dust jacket. Filled with info, this is written in Polish of course and includes b/w photos. About 63 pages in length.
Great Passenger lsit for the lovely Albert Ballin …. Once the leader of HAPAG he build HAPAG into the pre WW1 corporation it was. Sadly, his heath deteriorated and he dies before the end of WW1. The company named this lovely ship post war after him … only to have the named stripped away int he 1930’s after Hitler and the Nazi Party came to power (Ballin was of Jewish descent). Typical wear as expected … some scuffing and fold marks.
great PL for HAPAG’s lovely little Milwaukee. She spent a lot of time on cruises and was a beautiful little motor ship. The passenger list is written in German and English and includes some HAPAG Line history as well as History of the city of Milwaukee in Wisconsin for which her names was choses. Nice fold out of Colorful Nation flags in the rear … Not a common Passenger list. Typical wear with some scuffing and folds.
Dates for 1938 is the lightly texture stock passenger list. Very simple design. The cover looks like it may have some wine spots form the long ago voyage.
These are my favorite design for P&O plans … excellent colorful late 50’s graphics design! This looks to be dated 59 and is in very good shape . The Plans are color coded and there is a great colorful map of the P&O routes. Also Includes B/W Interior Photos. Printed on semi glossy stock.
There are my favorite design for P&O plans … excellent colorful late 50’s graphics design! This looks to be dated 1/59 and is in excellent shape . The plans are color coded and include great color photos of interior spaces on the ship as well as a few tropical destinations. and activities. Like New condition
These life rings were a popular souvenir in most shipboard giftshops. This one is in excellent condition. A Little KSC sticker on the back tells us this was once sold by the infamous Ken Schultz. He probably wove a grand fantastic fairytale story that this once belonged to a Nigerian Prince and therefor charged $195 for it. My price is much more reasonable and minus the fake news.
Great little pine box with a simple metallic cover … the upper left-hand corner has SAL’s 3 Crown flag done in enamel. Great little item for coins or jewelry. Great condition
Great little PL for the QM … not many travelers … her capacity and profits were sorely hurting by 1966.
Super Nice copy of the Inaugural brochure for the QM2 … packed with all sorts of inserts, plans and info on the ship. Great condition.
Great directory of shipboard info for the lovely Homeric. Printed on stock the inside is filled with great information and graphics. Pristine and unusual.
Great little image of a early UC steamer… not sure which one … but I bet she was some type of “fill in the blank” Castle. I have always loved the light lavender hulls. Some age spots and general wear… great little for framing.
Probably one of the most practical souvenir gifts you could have bought onboard … were these great little mirrors. The image of the ship as she steams along is an excellent birds-eye head-on view. The little protective pouch looks to be new. Great little item.
4 great copies of the Newspaper/ Magazine printed onboard the ship in 1963. Filled with all sorts of news od the day and interesting photos and info. In good shape with wear consisted with age.
The language Barrier here hinders me a bit … but I believe this proclamation celebrates the Meteor crossing of the Northern Polar Circle. Dated 1939 this is printed on thick stock and is in excellent condition. The graphics are superb and suitable for framing.
One of the many things that came with the ship when she reached Long Beach that would make their way into the onboard gift shops were the tens of thousands of different linen items that were used during her service life. This towel does come with spots and signs of use … but is in overall great condition. You can just see “Cunard Line” woven into the thread designs .. as well as a little Cunard tag on the side. These are large approx. 18×30. Perfect for a Cunard or QM collection.
NCL used every marketing ploy available to keep the Norway booked to capacity throughout her life … and they did so in part by playing on the Ships History as the “France- last of the Great Transatlantic Liners”. A smart move on their part … it certainly added to the mystique of the great ship and probably kept folks coming back for more. These framed cabin plaques were used to explain that rich history and hung throughout all cabins onboard. These do have some signs of everyday wear and tear … but I can only believe a scant few must have been saved. Own your own piece of her history today!
Great early tray … probably made pretty close to the line’s humble beginnings. These older ships with be totally dwarfed by the current Monsters of the RCL fleet … they could almost be tenders! Excellent condition.
The perfect little souvenir for the perfect little cruise ship. Excellent condition
One of my favorite images of these white beauties … passing the Manhattan Skyline. Great souvenir and in excellent condition.
One of my Favorite souvenirs for this special little ship are these great little trays. I love the ships image and the durability of these trays make them almost indestructible.
