Two unused Postcards for the long lived ship! Once the flagship for APL … she was sold to Chandris and became the Atlantis. After a year or 2 she was sold to eastern and sailed the Caribbean for years before going to other owners.
The Mikhail Lermontov was the last poet ship built for the Baltic Sea Shipping company in 1972. She sank on cruise after hitting rocks off the shores of New Zealand in 1986 .. and the wreck site has become a destination for divers. This is a perfect deck plan for this ship and showing interior views… a very rare find and in excellent condition!
Great copy of FOB’s very first book … the lives of the liners. Not only is the book a gem of history … each of the illustrations were sketches done by FOB. Everybody knows I’m FOB’s biggest fan and I can’t say enough about this book. Great condition published in 1947.
Lovely plate for the little Munson line. These little combo liners carried passenger and freight all along the eastern US Seaboard ports and Caribbean countries like Cuba from the early 1900’s until the late 1930’s.. Great condition (minor signs of use) with lovely boarder decorations and line logo. Pretty rare to find these!

The silver could us a little polish but the vase is in really nice shape. Love the house flag enamel crest on the front.
Unusual item to find in North America.
Lovely brass loving cup for the tiny little SS Minnetonka. She and here near sisters were Belfast built and part of Morgan’s IMM. She brought all sorts of new settlers to North America … only to be sunk in the Great War. Lovely enameled seal and house flag!
Very well done book by the accomplished maritime author David Williams. This explores the different painting schemes used on Passenger ships during their “military” service. The Dazzle painting schemed form WW1 have always fascinated me … somewhat of a relationship to modern cubist art of the time. Great BW photos! Excellent condition
Sitmar sailor doll .. ever steamship line sold a version of these. I swear the facial expressions change every time I look at them. Little fabric face and velvety sailor suit .. in great condition.

Cool little PL from a cruise on the Reliance. She started and a mid sized ship for HAPAG, was given to the Allies after WW1 and eventually sold back to HAPAG in the late 20’s. This list was from her time with United American / Harriman line. good shape. I don’t find much on this wonderful ship or her sister.
Little souvenir paperweight from a RCL ship. This is heavy and perfect to hold down your incomming cruise mail!
Great Italian Broggi mustard pot … directly from the onboard service of a Sitmar ship. I expect this is from one of the 70’s or 80’s ships like the Fairsky or Fairsea .. a little mystery. Includes the glass insert … which has a star of Bethlehem design stamped into it’s bottom. Can use some polishing to the silver and wood.
Lovely “My cruise to the West Indies” booklet .. a souvenir items from the cruise that started on 1/27/26 from NY.

The booklet lists passengers and some cruise staff/ officers.
Interesting set of 19 cards of the “Famous Brittish ship” series … though some ships are certainly not Brittish. From a Viking warrior through the Queen Mary … these are in excellent shape.

Edgar Pullin was the artist fort he cards …I especially love the WS Olympic card!
Lovely little track chart handed out to passengers so they could mark the ships progress accross the mighty ocean . This is unused and is in excellent shape.
