Cunard and White Star

Getting there was half the fun.

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: Mauretania Heavy Plastic Souvenir Lifering

A nice heavy plastic souvenir lifering for the Mauretania. Cunard probably sold these little guys (like all the other shipping lines) by the crate load. This one is in good shape …but needs a good cleaning.

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!

Cunard Line: Hotel Queen Mary souvenir shell dish

Nice shell shaped “Bridge Between 2 Nations” dish. A typical souvenir from a hotel Queen Mary gift shop!

This lovely orange Lion Ashtray was swiped from a ship probably in the 70’s or 80’s. I picked this up at a goodwill store while in college in about 1992 … time to find it’s was to a smoking Cunard lover!

Cunard Line: QM superliner pictorial.

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!
