Interesting little booklet brochure for the post war fleet ships and their interiors and amenities. Covers the Queens, Caronia, Mauretania, Media/Parthia, Britannic. There is a small rip to the cover .. otherwise normal wear and includes an agency Stamp from Reading Pennsylvania.
Interesting certificate for 1000 pounds of tock purchased in 1950. Per the notes on the back it was cashed by the probate court in 1962 after the owner passed away in 1961.
Nice 28 page booklet put together by Bill Miller … probably for a lecture series he gave on board the QE2. Features several short stories and photocopied drawings of the ships. Inscribed by Billie himself in 2003.
Excellent Bar menu swiped from the ship sometime in 1994. Lots of adult drink selections
Lovely Calendar planner bought onboard Hotel Queen Mary. Like New condition and each month has a photo image from her early years.
Excellent onboard service Eggcup by Maddock … super durable.
Lovely onboard souvenir ashtray for the Q … made form Quality Salisbury china. Excellent condition.
These are great ” comparison” reprints and quite suitable for framing or could be made into smaller placemats. Printed on heavy stock. Probably an items printed by 7’cs press
Nice set of 18 postcards covering the building of the Mighty QM2… very nice images that could be framed.
Little cobalt blue and gold boxed soap from the QE2 … highly perfumed and just gorgeous! The Cunard crest is stamped into the top of the soap.
Highly detailed medallion in the original box for the 1996 Voyage to Distant Empires world cruise. Excellent condition. I wash the QE2 was still in service instead of layup.
Lovely medallion to Commemorate the QE2’s 1975 World cruise. These continue to be popular souvenirs .. often encased in plastic.
Modern medallion to Commemorate the loss of the Lusitania. Excellent condition!
75 shares of IMM stock would have been a nice little investment back in the day … now just interesting to collectors for the 4 funneled ship image and its tie to the historical company. one edge of this is a little wrinkled .. but could be flattened easily (especially if framed). The 4 funnel ship is a nod toward the Olympic … but looks a bit more like one of the German 4 stackers.
Lovely and favorite children’s Novel “The House at Pooh Corner” stamped with the Cunard gold crest on the cover and inside “Queen Mary Library.” In great condition, it was probably a very popular book with traveling Nanny’s to lure the little ones to sleep. Greta condition!
The culmination of selling tools for Gene Darcy’s Ocean liner “wares” would be this catalogue he produced showing many of the items available for purchase. He started is company selling items scrapped from the Queen Mary in Long Beach and then added other ships and items after the initial sales successes. From the somewhat humble start, greed and growth soon set in and many of the later items he added have been proven to be of fictitious historical provenance .. though some of these later “replica” items have now become collectible as well. The catalogue is in excellent condition and provides a fantastic glimpse into items sold.
Great brochure / Vacation planner for the 69/70 season. The QE2 would make her debut alongside a few of the older ships that would soon be retired and sold off.
2 great onboard photos! One showing a couple making their way down a veneered staircase and the second of a group enjoying the sun outside on cushioned deck chairs. Great condition!
Nice time table for the Cunard Fleet … this time period would see the end of the Queen Elizabeth. One small chip/tear and some writing on the cover.
Great profile booklet for Cunard Line operations in 1994. The QE2 was still the queen of the fleet and had about another decade of life left in service. Excellent artistic rendering of her funnel on the cover. Great shape!
The Qe is proudly shown on the cover … and she would be withdraw from service in 1968 … the end was near! a little scuffed .. but nice item.
1947 passage Rate folder for biggest Cunard’s post war ships Queen Elizabeth, Mary and the Mauretania 2.
Great little souvenir pencil for the Giant QE. The little ship once floated in an oil substance … that has long since dried up and disappeared. Hard to clearly photograph..Still works!
I love the Mauretania two … she is just like a little Lizzie! This is a great interiors fold out … One of my favorite items for this ship.
Great log card for the SS Baltic … this one with the famous rendered image of the ships port bow. Noted for luxury and steadiness over speed they were pure money earners for the fleet … my favorite was the last of the 4, the Adriatic. Nice photo image the card of for a voyage May 28th 1927
