COOL COOL COOL … Lovely chair form cabin U122 on the great SSUS. The green checkered upholstery on this chair is in outstanding condition, no holes or wear that I can find … he arms are a little faded though as seen in the picture. The foam in the seat also is a little soft and needs to be reworked. Of course the structure of this chair is all metal and mostly aluminum … Gibbs of course saw to that! Great contitions. Shipping will have to be calculated and quoted by me, the calculator will not be accurate.
A lovely early postcard for the ship …showing a concept rendering of what the ship would look like. This is actually one of my favorite concept views of the ship … and her final construction was a little different. Great card!

Excellent double deck of playing cards for Moore Mac’s last set of passenger twins. The box is green velvet trimmed and lettered with gold. These are in pristine condition and the cards are still sealed with plastic. Perfect!
Lovely detailed Mercator Model for the Cap Polonio. This little lady was completed right after WW1 started and was drafted into the German Navy for a brief time … but released due to poor speed performance and large coal consumption. After the war, she went to the Allies ..and in 1921 was sold back to the Germans and employed on the South American route for which she was built. She was sold for scrap in the early years of the depression
Wonderful and minutely detailed Mercator Model of Germany’s leading lady to South America … the Cap Arcona. She was called the “Queen of the South Seas” and offered the finest passage from Germany to South American. Taken over by the German navy in WW2 she was used to house prisoners and refugees. Unfortunately, just a few days before Germany surrendered, she was bombed and almost 5000 souls lost their lives.
The details on these Mercator models is nothing short of extraordinary. This is a lovely model of the Columbus … really the only liner (she was on the ways) left to Germany at the end of WW2. Originally to be named Hindenberg she assumed the name Columbus .. when her sister “Columbus” was given to The Allies and become the Homeric for White Star. The Columbus (now ex Hindenberg) was modernized in the late 20’s to keep up with the speedy new NDL racers … the Bremen and Europa. The Columbus was sadly scuttled by her German crew off the US coast to a avoid capture.
