Pristine and like new …. excellent heavy silk/ rayon scarf for NDL’s Bremen and the Europa. I have seen these offered in many border colors … this one has a red boarder. Super condition and getting harder to find.
Tag lined: Happiness is a carefree cruise … lovely early brochure for NAL’s last ship. Filled with interior renderings and deckplans … this one is superbly done and for such a beautify lady! outstand 70’s graphics.
The best and most wonderful brochure ever done for HAL’s last true flagship … the 1959 Rotterdam. Filled with photos of her glorious interiors … most of these rooms still are pretty original today. Pristine and like new condition! Don’t miss this one!
Outstanding 8×11 Nieuw Amsterdam print ( also featuring the Maasdam and a corn colored hulled Orient Line ship in the background). Excellent condition and signed by the artist. Printed on heavy stock and would be perfect framed.
Graphically super 10th voyage log for the NDL flagship. she stunned the world with her design and speed on her maiden voyage … “gleaming like a new planet”. Good condition,
2 lovely colorful Berlin portrait mini menus from 1928. The graphics on these are just amazing. Certainly a stable money earner for the NDL fleet.
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.
Highly detailed medallion in the original box for the 1996 Voyage to Distant Empires world cruise. Excellent condition. I wash the QE2 was still in service instead of layup.
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.
A pristine copy of the “Norway” .. the lovely book dedicated to telling her conversion from the France to the Norway story. Written by john Maxtone Graham, the book is rich in text, prose and pictures of the amazing conversion and ship’s story. This would have been the Ultimate souvenir to purchase onboard during her debut seasons as the Norway. Pristine and gorgeous! … love the richly embossed cover!
Excellent copy of the best book ever written about the SS United States by impassioned author Frank O. Braynard. This is still the go to work on the ship from her (and WF Gibbs) early history to her sale to US Cruises in late 1979. Fancy wrapped dust jacket and excellent condition … I’m sure this was once someone’s cherished copy.
Great like new copy … this was a basic republication of FOB’s thriller “The Big Ship”, with some added text from Preservationists Robert Westover and Susan Gibbs. Susan is still fighting to save the vessel her grandfather designed and built! Please help join her …www.savetheunitedstates.org. Excellent book!
Probably one of the most common onboard gift shop items would be these mini life rings. this is made of strong plastic with a picture of the ship glued into the center. The outer banding and string is a little brittle, but still intact. Neat little item!
Lovely and favorite children’s Novel “The House at Pooh Corner” stamped with the Cunard gold crest on the cover and inside “Queen Mary Library.” In great condition, it was probably a very popular book with traveling Nanny’s to lure the little ones to sleep. Greta condition!
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.
Excellent color and Portrait President Van Buren Writing Paper and Envelope. A little yellow discoloration from age … but excellent overall.
Great brochure / Vacation planner for the 69/70 season. The QE2 would make her debut alongside a few of the older ships that would soon be retired and sold off.
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!
Interesting onboard souvenir photo with Playboy bunnies! The guys look very happy … their wife’s are a little let amused. Greta condition with Official photo holder folder.
Nice time table for the Cunard Fleet … this time period would see the end of the Queen Elizabeth. One small chip/tear and some writing on the cover.
Excellent and rare deck of cards for the Merchants and Miners Line! The cards are all present and in excellent condition for being open and lightly used … The box is not in great shape at all.
