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.

This is just one of those iconic on board items for Big U … the giant sized stateroom vase! Of course these are made out of lightweight Aluminum ..

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 =)

United States Lines: SSUS A Look Inside cutaway; Restocked

Wonderful pristine and famed cutaway for the SSUS. There were several versions of these … this one appears to be from the mid-1950’s. One side is all cutaway … the flip side has b/w interior and “activity aboard” photos. Lots of fun facts about the ship … and a small info section on the famed Hales Trophy! You could not ask for a better overall item about the ship!

United States Lines: SSUS crew quarters cast Aluminum sign

Cast aluminum crew signs for the ship like this seems to be pretty hard to find …. Probably because the other signs were much easier to locate and a little more “glamorous”. This is a cast molded piece .. of course out of lightweight Aluminum. This particular crew cabin would have been certified as being large enough for 21 seamen to occupy (who would have slept in Aluminum standee type bunks). Can you image all those seamen crammed into one room? Pretty rare to find these!

United States Lines: SSUS ALARM bell Relisted

An Alarm Bell removed from the beloved SSUS. Gibbs had an absolute creed for Safety … and this bell was part of the ships emergency warning system.. These Bells were placed throughout the ship and can be seen in various photographs ..Holy Cow is this darn thing loud and HEAVY!! … When these went off, they could wake the dead (watch out for SSUS Zombies!!). Excellent condition! I may have to quote shipping … this is heavy! Use this as a doorbell… and you’ll never miss another caller.

United States Lines: SSUS Porthole lugs: Restocked

Another hard to find item for the great SSUS … a pair of porthole lugs. I know there were at least 2 kinds of lugs on the ship … chrome covered ones like these that were in passenger/ public areas .. and brass lugs used in crew parts of the mighty ship! I remember last time I was on the Big U most of the portholes on the ship were locked so tight you would could never get them open (remember she was sealed tight by MARAD when she was laid up). On the QM today, they have welded a little dot-stop to the end of the porthole screws to keep souvenir scavengers from removing her solid brass lugs. A gem of an item … and a set that made every single service crossing!
