Really nice floaty Chusan letter opener … probably bought onboard the ship. Ivory colored and in excellent condition … though the ship no longer floats like it used too.
Matson Line: Ultimate fleet brochure for the 1930’s
Beautiful brochure for the 4 1930’s ships Lurline: Mariposa: Monterey and Matsonia. The first part of the brochure covers the routes of the 7 seas and the latter part walks us through the interiors of the 4 beautiful ships. The Lanai suites on these ships were quite luxurious. Unusual double centerfold one dedicated to the routes and one showing the Lurline in profile. New perfect condition.

Pristine deck plan with gorgeous profile for Royal Mail’s Andes. By this time in her career she was used extensively for cruising … just beautiful!.

Really nice color blotter for the NYK/ Japan Mail Line. Lovely profile of a twin funnel liner passing from the deck of another NYK liner. Some ink writing on the reverse side. Kind of rare to find in the USA
NYK Line: Asama Maru Maiden Voyage Brass bell
Just love this heavy brass bell that would be a gift celebrating her maiden
voyage in October 1929. The bell could use a good polish .. and the “clacker” is missing …easy to fix! Stamped made in japan ( of course)! pretty rare to find NYK items …especially related to special voyages!

Matson Line: SS Matsonia Deckplan for 1956
Superb little DP for the Matsonia liner printed on heavy tissue. Love the LANAI suite’s on these ships … almost like todays vessels with their private balconies. Matson always kept the White ships hulls pristine .. I bet the painting went on almost around the clock.
