Interesting Official Publicity photo showing the QE2’s funnel and lifeboats. The photo is actually of a builders model .. the ship was still under construction. Cunard press info on the revers side. Excellent condition.
Lovely canvas bag from the famed QE2. this was probably bought on board to be used to stuff full of shore side souvenirs and other fun stuff! If you missed you chance to buy one … here you go! In excellent shape …
These heavy pin type dishes were all the rage for souvenirs aboard many cruise line vessels in the late 80’s to mid 90’s. This one is from an 11 day cruise for the Sagafjord. In perfect shape!
Wow.. A full picture history of the famous Cunard Line . Printed by Bill’s Dover buddies, the books is a lavish picture history of the famed carrier. you could not beat the collaborative effort on this project Frank and Bill’s magic shows throughout the work. The pictures are of course outstanding: many from the FOB collection at the time. A must have picture and quick fact reference for Cunard!
I had never seen this little book before …of the thousands out there… this one is a keeper. Explore the titanic with these 2 gentlemen via their use of Postcards to tell the narrative. Pretty Interesting and in good shape… a little blemish where the price tag was once affixed.
One of the many ephemera items done for the QM’s early career .. The story of the QM Pictorial. This is chock a block full of the early history, building and design stories of the mighty liner. This has drawings, comparisons, fact/figures as well as an engaging narrative. The covers have a few edges rumples and slight wear. A very good reference pieces fort the beloved liner.
WOW … wonderful agency model for the cruising “sister ships”. When built, Cunard and many other lines thought the smaller ships were the wave of the future…. we certainly have come full circle with today Big box monsters. The Henning Model and plexi-case is in really good shape. The model is complete and could use a little cleaning .. the churned up water around the bow looks to be clean and blue as the Caribbean. The case shows some scratches and some “crazing” but is intact and not cracked etc. Both ships had long lives ..we just lost the Countess to fire not long ago. Shipping will need to be manually quoted
A modern liner like no other .. the QM2 is touted as the successor to the lovely and then soon to be retired QE2. The first ship brochure is full of renderings on the QM2’s interiors and amenities… the 2 story dining room is awesome! The second brochures covers her many “maiden” voyages as well as first season of cruising etc. Direct from Cunard/Carnival.. you won’t find early info on the QM2 that is better than these! Seattle agency sticker .. Great condition!
Lovely leather and metal key chain Luggage tag showing the QE2 in profile with a grey hull. this color scheme only lasted a short time right after her Falkland Island service. Excellent condition .. and certainly not to common to find!
Great little instructional panel brochure giving instructions on how to mail items to the ship during her 10th anniversary cruise in 1980. The QE2 was just about to come into her own sort of Nostalgic era … and become a real breadwinner for Cunard
Lovely little watercolor reprint .. I can’t read the names .. it could be either lovely little ship. When built, Cunard thought the era of the BIG super ships was over.. and concentrated on these smaller type ships. The print is in outstanding shape the fame has some bumps and nicks etc.
I just love these souvenir portfolios.. they are packed with great color public room pictures and tidbits of facts and figures. This one does have some rusty staining to the cover … but the inside info is intact and awesome. The back pocket would have held menus and misc items from your voyage, but these have long since been removed. Good used condition! Last one I saw online sold for over $100!
Seven lovely metallic drink coasters form the 1983 WCS cruise aboard the QE2. There are 6 total individually showing a Possum, Kangaroo, Platypus, Emu, Koala and a Kookaburra bird. These have been framed long ago … and preserved very well …very unique!
Awesome issue of the Titanic Commutator Vol 24 Number 13 for November 2000. Probably the highlight of the issue is the documentation of the Olympic Restaurant on the Millennium. Great Photographs … certainly detailed and extraordinary! As always, this magazine is loaded with any info related to the Titanic and related ships… and there are other various stories covered in this fine issue.
Informative thick and heavy rates brochure for the fleet … includes the entire Atlantic from Jan 1960 through December 1960. Heavy stock white covers in Great shape!
Three great items from the QM that all sport the famous port side Turner image of the ship blasting along through the waves of the North Atlantic. The lot contains a postcard, Voyage souvenir log from June 1958 and a Gala menu dated July 12th 1958. All 2 items have some yellow spots but the images are great! good condition!
Great little celluloid pin with a b/w image of the Maury 2. She was such a delightful little ship with her deco interiors. She survived into the 60’s but went to the scrappers when her last cruises were not successful.
Wonderful letter cards from the QE . These would have been available in the writing room and Cunard encouraged folks to write ( it was good advertising). The cover of the card is shown with the handsome Tuner image of the ship racing along on fairly calm seas .. she was ever bit the Flagship. The cards are in great shape … write all your Cunard fans in style. There are several available!
The large extravagant intro Brochure for the QM2 , how can this be described other than lovely? Cunard sure markets and capitalizes on the traditional and nostalgic aspects of the vessel and ocean liner travel .. and of course the ships relations to her historic retired fleet mates. The brochure if chock full of renderings of the ships interiors … most are almost too real looking not to be true photos! The insert in the back covers all of her voyages for the first season. Truly a modern masterpiece! A little bump to the cover corners.
Love little map of the British Isles give out to passengers. It is done in color and the opposite side of the map has a superb engraving view of the Cunard Building at 25 Broadway in NYC (which still exists). I was there a few years ago .. there are still Cunard Brass plaques near the entries. Excellent condition with a little hand writing on the front cover.. and a stamp “property of” mark on the rear cover.
Nice little rare Churchman cig card for the QM. I have seen these cards from candy bars, cigarettes and cereal boxes. This card is from the mid-1930’s, when the QM was spanking new. One of my favorite early QM profile views … shown in portrait orientation. Like new condition!
Nice little rare Mars card for the QM. These little collector cards came in many forms: I have seen them from candy bars, cigarettes and cereal boxes. This little card is from Mars candy company and shows the QM’s bridge (Starboard side profile). This card is from the mid-1930’s, when the QM was spanking new. Interesting view shown in Portrait orientation. Like new condition!
Nice little rare Mars card for the QM. These little collector cards come in many forms: I have seen them from candy bars, cigarettes and cereal boxes. This little card is from mars candy company and shows the QM’s “tourist” decks at the stern of the ship. This card is from the mid-1930’s, when the QM was spanking new. Interesting view in landscape orientation. Like New condition!
A very interesting souvenir, though I am perplexed if it dates to the ships Cunard years or if it maybe a HOTEL QM item. Interestingly the painted image is the ship in WW2 with 1000’s of GI’s on her decks and the text clearly states: Cunard White Star Liner Queen Mary. It is the cardboard easel like backside that looks almost too new for it to be from the ships service life … but maybe this was added later? There is also a cut out for this to hang, it is a great item in perfect shape!
4 lovely postcards of the QM … once she had arrived and became the Tourist Attraction for Long Beach. @ of the card even cover the Spruce Goose… which was Howard Hughs enormous wood plane designed for use in WW2 … he flew her only once after the war ended. The Goosey was moved to Oregon to another museum about 5 years or so ago. The cards are in great shape.
