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
Very well done “anatomy” book for the Lovely Queen Mary. Includes many elevations, cutaways and dissections of various parts of the ship as well as lovely sketches of public rooms and cabins. Somewhat hard to find and in great shape!
2 nice printed items done for the QM once she reached Long Beach/ The pictorial book is packed with short histories information photos and nostalgia. The comparisons is a reprint of the famous done at the time of her maiden voyage. Both items in excellent condition.
Great little fleet brochure done in the early 20;s to emphasize the lines history and resurgence after WW1. Lovely past (all the way back to Britannia) and present renderings of ships in the fleet .. Berengaria, Mauretania and Aquitania as well as the 20,000 tonners “A” liners that were then newbuilds. Really well done and in Excellent shape.
OUTSTANDING foldout brochure for the first ship of the Canadian Quartet. Lovely fold out of the awesome interiors!. Her and her sister Ivernia sparked some criticism for the Avant- guard deco over the top interiors .. so much that the last 2 sisters were toned down a bit internally. Personally, I thought they were just awesome. Love the Maple leaf details!
The best piece done for her in the 1930’s was this Gold covered brochure. No doubt the Cunard marketing was responding to all of the lavish advertising the French were putting out on the Normandie … the English were not to be outdone! This is filled with Color and BW pictures of interiors, artwork and lovely details. There is a particular emphasis on the multiple veneers used onboard. A fine piece, with some minor “tape” residue on the front gold cover.
No finer place for your cig butts than an beautiful ashtray bought onboard in the gift shop. Very good condition.
For Once in your life, Live!… was the Cunard Motto of the day. The ship would have been a decade old … and still pretty much have her original interiors. There are lots of great photos of those interiors in the brochure as well as deck plans and the lovely famous cutaway done for her! In great shape and very informative on her 26 crossings.
3 Nice issues as well an flyer and envelope. Love the 4 funnel logo!
