Hapag and NDL

Gutentag!

NGL: Bremen 1923 deckplan.

Germany was depleted of almost all of their shipping tonnage after WW1 … but NGL was able to get the Bremen back into service. A neat little ship … her name would eventually be reused with the sparkling and amazing Bremen of 1929 (and then the Bremen (rebuilt Pasteur) of 1959. The plan certainly has browned, has some cello tape repair and a waterpoton a fold line … but Kind of rare to find something for one of the few members of the Post WW1 German fleet!

NDL: Sierra Ventana lunch Menu 1926

This elegant little 1926 menu dates long before she would have joind the KDF fleet. The menu is in German and English … the passenger must have been English  … as they have checked items on that site of the offering. I would have had the potato pancake with mashed apples for sure! YUMMY!

NDL: 60’s Europa and Bremen Brochure

Lovely little brochure for the German companions. The Bremen was basically the pre WW2 French liner Pasteur rebuilt from the hull up …. and the Europa was the postwar SAL Kungsholm with a few tweaks including new wallpaper and paint. Full of great full page photos, this is a great little reference items for the ships.

Cunard Line and Hapag! Berengaria/ Imperator Dining room chair with arms.

This chair is once again available!
The mighty Imperator was the debut member of Albert Ballin’s ultra- luxuriant Big Three: Imperator, Valterland and Bismarck. She spent most of WW1 laid up in the River Elbe and came under Allied control at the end of the hostilities. She would eventually go to Great Britain as sort of a “consolation prize” for the loss of the Lusitania … becoming Cunard’s Berengaria. Super lucky for us, most of her original German furniture was kept onboard throughout the war years and then refurbished by Cunard for peacetime service. These are the first class dining room chairs with arms. They have wonderful carved details on the arms, wooden framework, legs and back structure … elegant blooming Roses and egg and dart-like frieze are featured in the most of carved details. On this chair, it is the Acanthus leaves on the arms that are outstanding. The very top of the back is flattened … where the ivory carved seat number was once located during her years at sea (now long removed). A prior owner had the chairs refurbished sometime in the past 20 years or so: the upholstery, springs and seat undercover have all been replaced. The current velvety upholstery is very reminiscent of the original in both color, design and I’m guessing texture .. the Germans loved ornate floral brocade like velvets! Overall wonterfully nice … certainty a few bumps and scratches from almost 100 years of use! I’m happy to answer any questions.**** Shipping calculator will not be accurate for this item , I will need to quote shipping specifically ****

Cunard Line and Hapag! Berengaria/ Imperator Dining room chair without arms #1: This item has been sold

The mighty Imperator was the debut member of Albert Ballin’s ultra- luxuriant Big Three: Imperator, Valterland and Bismarck. She spent most of WW1 laid up in the River Elbe and came under Allied control at the end of the hostilities. She would eventually go to Great Britain as sort of a “consolation prize” for the loss of the Lusitania … becoming Cunard’s Berengaria. Super lucky for us, most of her original German furniture was kept onboard throughout the war years and then refurbished by Cunard for peacetime service. These first class dining room chairs have wonderful carved details on the wooden elements, legs and back structure … elegant blooming Roses and egg and dart-like frieze are featured in the carved details. The very top of the back is flattened … where the ivory carved seat number was once located during her years at sea (now long removed).

The current velvety upholstery is very reminiscent of the original in both color, design and I’m guessing texture .. the Germans loved ornate floral brocade like velvets! Certainly some bumps and scratches from use. The only other flaw is this is missing the lacey trim around the front of the seat back.

North German LLoyd: Bremen / Europa Bakelite Ash tray:

Awesome Bakelite ashtray for the German twin flyers! This was probably snitched from an onboard smoking room. Great bas relief image of the ships in the bowl … sporting their lower funnels … so it must be a pretty early item. Glad somebody slipped this into their pocket or steamer trunk!

German Atlantic Line: Hsnseatic Keychain

Great little keychain … would have been offered out of the onboard giftshop. This cute little bugger could easily be converted into a stylish necklace!  I just loved the Hanseatic … you could always see the nuances of her Brittish CP interiors behind the newer German artwork and furnishings.

Hapag: Imperator Early Brochure

Hamburg American Line: Imperator. She was the first of Ballin’s big three and post WW1 became Cunard’s Berengaria. The famed cast iron eagle figurehead was short lived … the wings today are deteriorating someplace on the Atlantic seabed. This is one of the most impressive and very early brochures for her … and filled with crisp German photographs. Just stunning! I saw a ragged copy of this sell on Ebay for $375 this past month.. this one is near perfect (only slightly chipped cover edges) and a much better deal!

NGL: Columbus : Passenger list and log.

Very nice little Feb 1934 passenger list and log for the 11th Mediterranean cruise organized by James Boring. The list is in great shape: except someone did hole punch it and also folded a page corner at sometime in the past. The owner must have been a tourist class passenger.. there are red pencil tick marks next to several of the TC passengers and a name or 2 written into the list.
