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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
2 nice mini items that Cunard printed and handed out to everyone that would take a handful. The Wonder ships covers the QE and the QM and the Conquest is a mini story for Cunard’s evolution. Great reference and factual items for all collectors!
Exceptional high quality Henning Model completed for the Cunard sisters. Super high quality, this would have been a travel agency display. The plexi-glass case shows a little crazing at the ends. These sisters were once chartered to Chandris. I’ll have to quote shipping, the calculator will not be accurate. Approx 36″ long!
Exceptional high quality Henning Model completed for the Great Pacific Cruise of the QE2. Super high quality , this would have been the ultimate souvenir item you could purchase to celebrate and remember your voyage. This would be the centerpiece of any QE2 collection MINT condition! Shipping will need to be quoted, the automatic calculator will not be accurate. Approx 24″ long.
Great fold out showing CC interiors for the 2 Queens, Mauretania 2 and Caronia. You have to love British Deco .. just great photographs!
One of the most popular post war brochures for the royal consorts .. this has the spectacular Carl Evers rendering on the cover showing the 2 ships passing in Mid Atlantic. Though the cover has some blemish, the inside of this brochure is awesome and full of sepia toned photos of the interiors of both vessels. Great item!
Very artistically done book documenting the building of the QM2 … full of exceptional, quality and hard to find photos of the building process. This comes enclosed in a dust binder … with a few nicks to the cover but overall wonderful book!
Nice copy of the fold out done to show off the new ships luxury interiors. I just love all the full color pictures. A little scuffing to the cover … but overall in good shape.
Packet for Hotel QM items:
3 folders, 1 ticket, 1 button and 1 Passport .. all is good shape! Spruce Goose also covered in at least one of the foldouts.
These 50’s deck plans are my favorite for the ship .. as they are color coded and have great color images of rooms aboard. The Britannic was the last WSL ship .. and my favorite British motor vessel. Ohhh her lounge was so cool .. I wonder where the wood inlays are today??? Outstanding ‘just like it was printed’ condition .. Cunard marketing got these right! Detroit Agency Stamp
