Sitmar Line: Travel Agency Brass award plaque

If you owned a travel agency and sold a lot of cruises or vacation destinations … you typically would be honored with some sort of plaque/ trophy for your efforts ( … maybe at times even a free cruise or trip). This is a huge heavy plaque for Sitmar Cruises. The brass Fairstar silhouette is HEAVY and solid and I believe the wooden plaque it is mounted to it Teak. Really interesting Travel agency item.

*** Very heavy item … shipping calculator may not be accurate, I will have to quote/ confirm shipping***

Amazing AE line table cloth. All cotton and proudly made in America (of course) this is a gorgeous table cloth. The sailing ship line logo is woven into the pattern and surrounded by Americian Export Isbrandtsen Lines Inc.This one is approx 36×36. At one time this was  cleaned, folded and never used again.

SS Silverstar deckplan

Cute little deckplan … for the puggy little Silverstar. She started life in the Military … and after WW2 was converted into a little cruise ship operating off the east coast of the US. She was pretty utilitarian and somewhat successful in her own way. A note tells us Mom stayed in cabin 42. The Silverstar was such an odd duck…You do not see much for her.

Beau Voyage book by JM Brinnin

Beau Voyage by JM Brinnin : Awesome photographic record of North Atlantic Liners from Brinnin in the mid 1970’s. From the images of the QM’s anchor chains laid out and ready for installation on page 20 , to the riveting photograph of passengers descending the staircase of the Ile de France into the post war dining room ( note the light fixtures reflected in the mirror )… the B/W images in this book do not disappoint … and quite a few are fairly uncommon in publication. The text is pretty engaging too. Great shape with a few minor tears to the dust jacket. 271 pages
