Felt souvenir pennant for HAL’s 1957 Statendam. She is one of my favorite 50’s ladies … and I have a few items from her from my buddy Peter Knego at www.midshipcentury.com. This pennant was used for sure … it has pin holes an the ends, the last “M” is a bit crinkled and it is missing one of the set of the tie tassels.
Cute 3 crowned ashtray from a SAL ship. I see lots of these at Antique Malls advertised a “rare” and usually on sale for $25 or more. True ship lovers know these are pretty common … and I am certainly much more reasonably priced.
Great Jewish services Union prayer book from a HAL library. There are several 1962 date stamps. Good Condition with tight binding.
Holland America Line Loving cup. These are always fun! this silver plated babe was probably given away as an award for an onboard event like horse racing or a costume party. Complete with the enameled Art Deco Nieuw Amsterdam” corporate logo.
Oslofjord: A rare mother of pearl souvenir pocket knife for the 2 funnel inter-war Oslofjord. Her 2 funnel silhouette is inlaid into the top side of the knife case. Probably was a special gift for some lucky little boy at some point! This particular Oslofjord was a very early causality of WW2. This needs some attention to the blades…lil’ rustly
NAL Souvenir wooden “Do Nothing”. NAL gave these away as advert promos for their freight service … where their service was so easy …you as the client would have to “do nothing”. It certainly works … and “does nothing” very well.
SS Stockholm. Great post card for the little Swedish ship that was the major player in sending the Andrea Doria to the bottom of Nantucket Shoals. Amazingly, the ship still survives in operation today .. albeit in a completely rebuilt form.
Really cute little info booklet from the early 60’s … defines onboard amenities, nautical terms and gives good general shipboard info! Excellent condition!
Great 1959 27 page booklet filled with Facts and Figure about the HAL Flagship. this was issued right before her Maiden voyage in 1959. The dutch were very proud of thier new ship …and rightly so! Excellent condition!
