One of the original post WW2 cruise ships … the Nassau started life as the Mongolia for P&O. After a few names and company changes … she was bought by Incres and transformed into quite a little gem of a tropical cruise ship. Though there were many hints of her prior life … Incres added modern furnishings in bright and tropical colors as well as amenities like a double swimming pool and offered 10000 feet of Lido deck area covered with deck chairs and umbrellas. She made a lot of cash and allowed Incres to expand with the Victoria later in the 50’s. Great condition and excellent color photos. There are a few page wrinkles. The colors are just delightful!
Great little fold out describing the many cruises and crossings for Italian Line fleet. Lovely cover graphics! Good condition with typical wear.
Excellent large fold out highlighting the 2 ships in detail. Heavy stock paper with lovely full color renderings of the ships exterior and many of the public rooms. Even includes info on the funnels. Great condition with a few internal wrinkles.
2 lovely and pristine unused Baggage stickers from the Oceanic and her “Sun Way” cruise program. Great graphic of the ship and lovely colors.
My favorite later interior foldout for this beautiful ship. The fold out is in pristine condition and full of great color photos and neat areas of graphics. A delightful item.
One of my favorite early interior items for this beautiful ship. According to this foldout the Colombo was “a ship designed for sunshine and open-air freedom”… nice Pictures both in b&w and color with great graphics. A nice item with some small minor separations at the fold lines.
Wonderful and colorful Home Lines swizzle sticks .. Set of 4 Red, Blue, Yellow and Green. These could be used for your liner themed cocktails
Great little brochure for the winter tours of both ships from November 59 thru April 30th 1960. There are 2 pages of b/w interior photos .. the grand staircase on the Ausonia is shown … Buddy PK saved these Luzzatti panels. In excellent condition with a Denver Agency stamp.
Great directory of shipboard info for the lovely Homeric. Printed on stock the inside is filled with great information and graphics. Pristine and unusual.
One of my favorite images of these white beauties … passing the Manhattan Skyline. Great souvenir and in excellent condition.
Set of trays for the Oceanic, Atlantic and Homeric … Home Lines last 3 new builds. These are in great condition and not often offered as a set.
Great double set of playful red and blue deck of Playing Cards from the Oceanic. Challenge your best buddy to Gin Rummy! wonderful plastic case and the cards are still wrapped.
A grand framed press photo dated 7/7/65 showing 8 liners at the docks in NYC. This was certainly the twilight of this era … within a decade many of these ships would be retired or sailing for second lives. The SS United States sleeps in Philadelphia harbor and the QM is currently being renovated in Long Beach harbor. The press photo is in good condition and is safely displayed under glass.
Lovely little paper matchbook with great 50’s/ 60’s graphics w/ Federico C’s silhouette.
AN exceptional double set of playing cards for Homeric. These are still wrapped in cellophane and come in the original box! … Love the Homeric Graphic on the deep blue background.
An oversized post card for the beautiful Conte Di Savoia … Probably my favorite interwar Italian Lady. There are “pin holes at the corner … someone lovingly had this lovely card tacked up so they could look at her all the time.
Interesting single baggage tag … actually marked “Atlantic Cruise Lines” … must have been some sort of short term Charter for the TS Carla C ( ex Flandre). Excellent condition.
A super model of a super ship … the Oceanic. The first real major ship designed for full time cruising … her plans changes while she was still being build. the model is in wonderful condition!
Excellent ceramic ashtray ..for 4 lines: Tirrenia, Italia, LLoyd Triestino and Adriatica. In great shape with a galleon of sorts in the bowl.
Great booklet covering the impressive Angelina Lauro. Filled with info, graphics photos and of course a nice fold out section of deck plans. Barely legible Delaware Agency stamp on the cover and a little corner rumple (should press flat under weight). Like New!
Nice tag from the Oceanic in great shape with a little browning around the edges. Nice string and unused condition.
A dancing pooch on the cover plays what looks to be a cello … hovering over an embossed Italian Line Logo. Inside is the list of the musical pieces performed on 18 August 1938. Some age spot and browning … really interesting!
Neat little Festi Equatorial program for a 1927 voyage on the “Green Count”. Crossing the equator was always a major event on any ship on such a voyage. Good Condition with some browning and minor blemishes.
Nice little music program for the Conte Grande .. for a voyage just months into WW2.The Conte Grande would survive WW2 and return to the Italians after hard war service. A little aged and interesting!
One of the best Intro brochures ever done … is this dramatic one for the Andrea Doria. This is filled with colorful interior renderings and lots of great info on the soon to be Italian Flagship. Her last voyage was certainly her most famous. This brochure is in excellent like new condition.
