Outstanding Brochure for these 2 little post war Ladies. One class, one funnel and one Screw … these gals had Cunard’s distinctive British Art Deco interiors. These gals were eventually sold off to other owners for other lives.
This outstanding booklet covers there interior spaces in detail .. exceptional!
Cool and very nautical ashtray for the beloved QE2. Made of brass and wood it is nicely done and a quality souvenir. Excellent condition with a great little crest at the center. This will display nicely!
Interesting folder for the Cunard Princess … chock full of passenger info and whatnot. Excellent cover picture and mini pics throughout. Great shape!
Great little souvenir dish for the last Carmania. After Cunard she has a long life for several owners. The dish has a great etched profile. Still has it old Bull/ Bear- Nautiques price tag on the back dating back to the days of Leon. … my price dropped a little. Nice condition with some marks from use!
Lovely smoked glass and gold letter dish Cunard’s little Countess. she had a pretty long cruising life … a fire ended her career as the ocean Countess under Greek ownership. Excellent condition.
Sumptuous foldout for the Mauretania 2 showing her ART Deco interiors. lovely cover graphics , ship info and gorgeous color interior photos make this a must have item! No date .. but probably from the mid 50’s, it’s in great shape.
Great little 1937 fold out for the SS Laconia! the excursion was a ploy to get folks to travel “back to the Homeland”. The ship was to sail from Boston 7/31/1937. 4 nice interior photos on the inside .. and Lynch’s portrait on the back cover with some writing. Just a few years later she would be sunk with a large loss of life in WW2.
Saved from the salvage yards of Alang comes this 3 piece vanity set. Though the 3 pieces come from different cabins , they can me refinished into a single vanity unit like what would have been fitted into one of the first/ cabin class staterooms. The veneers are just beautiful … very fully grained and visually outstanding. The construction of all 3 pieces is solid .. the pride of the cabinet fitters is still evident today. Love the handwritten construction and placement notes as well as the bases that were cut to conform to the ships deck shear. Like all furniture form the Ivernia/ Franconia I offer, these were saved by buddy Peter Knego when the ship was dismantled and cut up to feed the smelting furnaces of India. I will have to quote shipping .. the automatic calculator will not be accurate
Lovely folder for 1969 covering the Maiden Year for the Historic QE2. Lovely profile photo of her sailing on sunny seas. Pristine Crisp condition

Pristine set of FC Deck plans for the Franconia … which started life as the Lovely Ivernia for Cunard Canadian services.: Once the profits on the Canadian run started to wan ..

The book celebrating Cunard’s 150 year anniversary. Packed with great photos and historical information … a must have reference for any Cunard buff and crony.
Nice guide to the ports visited by the Cunard ships in the 70’s and early 80’s.
Huge passenger list done in gold and green. there is a lovely golden profile of the QE2 on the cover. The cruise started on January 17th 1983 … which was my 14th birthday. All names in green ink. The cover has some scuffs and silverfish nibbles … the rest of the booklet is in pristine shape.
Sponsored by Raymond Whitcomb these years cruises were quite popular in the 1920’s and 1930’s. the Carinthia was often used for these types of chartered cruise services. There are several pages dedicated to the ship … but most of the booklet covers the destinations and tours etc. Outstanding cover art. 88 pages! All here , the cover has been cello taped at some point in the past and shows some bumps.
Someone for sure swiped this from an onboard smoking room, Excellent condition.
Great set of deck plans for temporary Tourist Class for the Britannic. Interesting Cunard symbol on the cover as well as the ship is listed as a “Luxury Liner” In good shape with a little browning to the edges and some cover scuffs. Note a common item to find !

Lovely cruise offering for the 3 ships … the Megantic, New York and St Paul. the New York and St Paul were certainly OLD by this time … but they still were put to work on “West Indies” cruises. Lots of good info on these 3 ships. Lovely green cover graphics. In good condition and printed on heavier newsprint.
Great notice for lovely little Cunard vessel. The notice gives all sorts of information including info on the Special train etc. The Laconia was a tragic loss in WW2.
