These life rings were a popular souvenir in most shipboard giftshops. This one is in excellent condition. A Little KSC sticker on the back tells us this was once sold by the infamous Ken Schultz. He probably wove a grand fantastic fairytale story that this once belonged to a Nigerian Prince and therefor charged $195 for it. My price is much more reasonable and minus the fake news.
Great souvenir bell for the Oriana… the brass bell is mounted on a cast iron anchor and includes the wonderful Oriana enameled seal. Excellent condition
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.
Popular and nice onboard souvenir … directly form the gifts hop. This has been repaired .. the photo shows the crack and priced accordingly.
The first extravagant brochure done for the then under construction Canberra. Just packed with excellent interior renderings and info about the new superliner to the land “down under”. There is some browning discoloration to the cover but the pages are great and filled with colorful renderings and a magnificent two page centerfold of the ship. Designed by Embassy Arts.
Excellent NIB Airfix Puzzle with the Canberra docking/undocking by the Sydney Harbor bridge with the assistance of 4 tugs.
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.
I love these little souvenir trays you could only purchase on board .. great condition for this lovely corn yellow hulled ship. $18
Excellent Orion bookmark , probably bought onboard in the gift shop. Once side is an excellent profile the revers side are facts, figures and info one the lovely liner. She was the first art deco liner for Orient line and had magnificent interiors.
Great plan on very heavy paper. Covers all deck plans for first class services as well as a great profile.
Excellent condition with a little handwriting.
Nice green plan for the Tourist areas of the Orsova… of course covers the accommodations and public rooms including the Sun Deck Pool.
Nice little deckplan printed on heavy tissue for the lovely white Arcadia. Though she was built exclusivity to sail to the land down under … she like most liners switched to cruising at least part of the time. This deckplan is in good shape.
Great issue of the SSHSA’s steamboat Bill … lovely picture of the burned out Angelina Lauro on the front cover … and the Sea princess ( Ex-Kungsholm) on the back cover. Inside the are lots of different articles … the best is on the last voyage of PO’s Arcadia. Great shape with a little scuffing to the covers.
Nice little 1963 foldout for the 1963 fleet voyages. Cover all ships in the fleet … from the newer Canberra to the older fleet mates like Orcades and Himalaya. There are same onboard pictures as well. Like New condition!
Sweet sparkling tea caddy for the Himalaya. She was a post war liner for P&O build (as strong and sturdy as her namesake moutain range) by Vickers Armstrong. I love the developing design of these liners .. as the bridge was pulled back toward the funnel. Nice caddy with enameled flag crest and name. Great for tea time!
The first Sun Princess was originally P&O’s Spirit of London … but was quickly transferred to the budding princess fleet when P&O bought Princess cruises in the early 1970’s. Once the popular “Loveboat” series started filming onboard the fledgling Princess fleet … bookings soared! This Irish Linen hand towel is just in absolute pristine condition … probably purchased onboard during a cruise and kept in a drawer as a precious memento. Not a common towel to find at all!
A nice “new in the box and never opened” model for the lovely Oriana. I sure wish she was still around today. After her sailing life, she was off to the Orient for multi-use as a convention center etc. After springing a few too many leaks .. she was quietly stowed to the scrappers. How sad! I bought this model for a fun winter project … but alas I have way too may other projects that need attention!
Mint Janurary1962 passenger list for the Canton. Look at all the exotic destinations for these folks .. Bombay, Aden, Singapore etc. Crisp and nice … I’m sure it sat in a drawer for 40 years +.
