United States Lines: SS Leviathan Builders Book – Brochure
Probably the most detailed and through book on the “refit” of the Leviathan for passenger service. The Americans were certainly proud of this magnificent war prize that gave our nation our first giant flagship. WF Gibbs was on cloud nine as well. Packed with lots of historic info and filled with pictures and period ads etc. The cover has a little wear, a bit of the lower left hand side is detached from the binding.

Excellent copy of the best book ever written about the SS United States by impassioned author Frank O. Braynard.

Fancy wrapped dust jacket and excellent condition … I’m sure this was once someone’s cherished copy.

I have several of these available (stock image).
United States Lines: SS United States Tourist plans
The USL marketing did amazing plans for the SSUS … and these for tourist class were done just as nicely as for the other classes onboard. The plans are color coded and the color pictures of rooms and accommodations are great! The cover color is a little toned and faded on this particular plan , but the insides are perfect!
United States Lines: SS US Needle pack
When the SSUS was introduced, the American public was so excited and proud … there were all sorts of items and ads that were equated with he ship. From Oil adverts to these Needle packs , everyone was cashing in on the clout of the SSUS! Used … but most needles are still in the package . Lovely Cartoony Image.

I can’t say enough about this book … truly one of Bill’s masterpieces! This copy is in great condition with a small tear to the rear dustcover and other DC edge rumples. An exceptional and essential reference book … grab it while you can. Please help save the SS United States @ www.savetheunitedstates.org.

Lovely Lamberton Bullion cup from the SSUS or America.

This cup is in excellent condition and ready for some hot soup to be served on your USL table! Several available
United States Lines: SSUS or America Mayer Soup/Cereal Bowls Restocked
You just cant beat the simple “Grey Star” design that Both Mayer and Lamberton supplied to the USL fleet post WW2. All of these pieces are marked “expressively for US Lines” and are in great shape with minimal signs of daily use. Very Durable quality construction. Lovely!!!
United States Lines: First Class Cabin upholstered arm chair.
COOL COOL COOL … Lovely chair form cabin U122 on the great SSUS. The green checkered upholstery on this chair is in outstanding condition, no holes or wear that I can find … he arms are a little faded though as seen in the picture. The foam in the seat also is a little soft and needs to be reworked. Of course the structure of this chair is all metal and mostly aluminum … Gibbs of course saw to that! Great contitions. Shipping will have to be calculated and quoted by me, the calculator will not be accurate.
United States Lines: SS United States Galley Coffee Urn: Repriced and relisted !
OHHH MYYYYY WOW … here is another one of those rare and unique items. I brought this back from a recent trip out West … One of the Coffee Urns from the ships galley. I believe this came from the galley that served First and Cabin class dining rooms… and is pictured in the SS Guernsey’s auction catalogue (Wednesday 10/03/84). This was of course steam driven (manufactured by RUDSCO) and is complete as far as I can tell! It comes with various glass replacement parts as well. I was told this can make 144 cups of coffee at a time … great for your SSUS bashes! Solid construction and expected condition from preparing a lot of coffee … still has a faint and rich percolator smell.
This will require a shipping quote… the site shipping calculator will not be accurate. Ask me about delivery options =)
