NDL: Columbus Mercator Model.

The details on these Mercator models is nothing short of extraordinary. This is a lovely model of the Columbus … really the only liner (she was on the ways) left to Germany at the end of WW2. Originally to be named Hindenberg she assumed the name Columbus .. when her sister “Columbus” was given to The Allies and become the Homeric for White Star. The Columbus (now ex Hindenberg) was modernized in the late 20’s to keep up with the speedy new NDL racers … the Bremen and Europa. The Columbus was sadly scuttled by her German crew off the US coast to a avoid capture.

HAPAG: Imperator Mercator Model

Known for their minute and impressive detail, Mercator models are amazing!… Here we have the first of Ballin’s trio … the Imperator.

The model shows the Imperator very early in life … with the bow eagle and super tall funnels. The eagle lasted on a few voyages .. and the funnels were shortened in her first refit. Excellent condition!

NGL: Di Bremen Kehrt Heim booklet

Wonderful little booklet about the Bremen and her elusive dash out of NYC and homeward at the onset of WW2. She was painted grey at sea … and made it home to Bremerhaven via Murmansk.

The poor was Bremen burned out by the end of the war. Pretty rare little booklet… and neat photos! There is a tiny tear on the back cover does not detract in anyway.

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!

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). 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! 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. I’m happy to answer any questions.**** Shipping calculator will not be accurate for this item, I will need to quote shipping specifically ****
