Cunard and White Star

Getting there was half the fun.

Cunard line: Mauretania 2 Chad Valley Puzzle

Just the cutest little wooden Chad Valley puzzle ever for the Mauretania 2. In excellent shape and complete, this is an interesting cartoony image of the ship. These puzzles were very popular in the 30-50’s. I’m sure this was a gift for an adoring little child. The box has some issues … but the puzzle is perfect!

Cunard Line: Mauretania 2 last voyage Press Photo.

Poetic Photo of the Mauretania 2 on her way to the breakers. The Firth of Forth bridge (IK Brunell’s masterpiece) is in the background. What a sad day for any ship … but she had a good life and stayed working for Cunard for all her years afloat. Great Photo and AP caption.

Cunard White Star: Tourist Accommodations various ships Brochure for 1949.

Oh to have traveled on any one of these ships would have been amazing … even in tourist class! Of course the QM would have been my first choice … followed quickly by a tie between the lovely WSL sisters Britannic and Georgic (though she was under austerity service at this point). All of the ships would have been fun! Nice B/W photos of the various TC accommodations … an excellent visual resource!

Cunard Line and Hapag! Berengaria/ Imperator Dining room chair without arms #1: This item has been sold

The mighty Imperator was the debut member of Albert Ballin’s ultra- luxuriant Big Three: Imperator, Valterland and Bismarck. She spent most of WW1 laid up in the River Elbe and came under Allied control at the end of the hostilities. She would eventually go to Great Britain as sort of a “consolation prize” for the loss of the Lusitania … becoming Cunard’s Berengaria. Super lucky for us, most of her original German furniture was kept onboard throughout the war years and then refurbished by Cunard for peacetime service. These first class dining room chairs have wonderful carved details on the wooden elements, legs and back structure … elegant blooming Roses and egg and dart-like frieze are featured in the carved details. The very top of the back is flattened … where the ivory carved seat number was once located during her years at sea (now long removed). A prior owner had the chairs refurbished sometime in the past 20 years or so: the upholstery, springs and seat undercover have all been replaced. The current velvety upholstery is very reminiscent of the original in both color, design and I’m guessing texture .. the Germans loved ornate floral brocade like velvets! Certainly some bumps and scratches from use. The only other flaw is this is missing the lacey trim around the front of the seat back. I’m happy to answer any questions.**** Shipping calculator will not be accurate for this item, I will need to quote shipping specifically ****

White Star Line: Titanic related pictures

Nice little collection of 21 pictures of Titanic models,exhibitions, pvt collection items and Titanic Memorials. These came to me from parts of the large John Hollis collection that was sold a few years ago. John Hollis was a self styled professional Titanic lecturer associated with the THS. Really cool models shown! She went to thebottom 101 years ago!

Cunard line: Queen Mary and QE matching Framed prints.

Super nice twin set of prints for Cunard’s wonder ships the QE and QM. These are matching framed prints … but I’m sure they are “souvenir” posters …not ones that would have been released to an agency. At one time, you could buy prints in the onboard gift shops … and much later from folks like Gene Darcy sold leftover originals (and eventually reprints) through his “Stories of the Queens” effort. The QM print is under glass, however the QE print is not. A few nicks and bumps to the frames. Nice matching set!

Cunard Line: Mauretania candle sticks

An outstanding pair of candle sticks made from teak salvaged when she was scrapped in 1935. These have been beautifully lathe turned and each has the “dismantled by” plaque attached to the base. A really nice item from her. Many folks cried when she went for scrap … FDR even penned a nice farewell to her!.

Cunard Line: Hotel Queen Mary porcelain souvenir box set. MM17

2 cute little boxes from a Hotel Queen Mary giftshop. One of these has the decal printed backwards … someone was not watching the assembly line that day! Some folks bemoan the QM’s current condition … but I say at least she is still with us and open for business! She is a BIG gal to constantly maintain .. I think her newest “owners” are trying!

Cunard White Star: Britannic Programs/ Racecards

Nice little lot of 5 daily programs and 2 racecards for Britannic First class July 1953. These are always fun to review to see what was happening onboard a typical voyage. A little wear and yellowing/ discoloration to each one … still great though! I loved this little lady!

Nice shell shaped “Bridge Between 2 Nations” dish. A typical souvenir from a hotel Queen Mary gift shop! Tens of thousands of this type of things are out there … dish sets, salt n pepper shakers, hotpads and salad tongs … anything that could have a QM image printed on it was sold onboard to the tourist crowd.

This is probably one of the best little publications done for the QM since her arrival in California. Filled with interesting figures, tids and bits. For awhile, she shared real estate with Hugh’s Spruce Goose. Looks like this was a $3.95 item when purchased new ..

Cunard line: Maddock China crescent dish: Restocked!

Maddock was the staple of all Cunard china patterns in the 50’s and 60’s. Very durable … it could tolerate the hot temps of the ships scullery equipment. Best thing about Maddock for collectors… each piece was dated when it left the factory… from 1966. Several available

Cunard: Ivernia Mechanical Float Pencil

Oh, probably Peter Kengo is the only person that can tell you exactly hom much I loved the little Ivernia/ Franconia. She was such a special little Canadian lady. Great floaty mechanical pencil … of course a gift shop item. I don’t think the little “Ivy” floats anymore (needs oil refilled)… but all else is excellent w/ lead! Orginial box and instruction sheet.

Cunard Line: Aquitania WW2 framed photo

Nice WW2 picture of the Aquitania. From 1914, she survived both wars and gave the company spectacular 4 funneled service. She was also the last 4 funneled ship … and after hard use and minimum post WW2 austerity refurbishment.. went to the scrappers in 1950. I think this is a modern “nostalgic” photo.

Cunard Line: QM “faucet on a plaque” by Darcy

A fun item from Gene Darcy and his “Stoires of the Queens” traveling store. Darcy bought all sorts of items from scrapped ships … and the made plaques, lamps, bookends at the like. He also offered items that were not authentic .. but this faucet is certainly not one of those items. Many of the cabins and loos aboard QM still have these as working faucets today! I know a guy in Texas that has 100s of these things … I firmly believe he is trying to reassemble each ship bit by bit!
