Direct form the gift shop … and still smelling lightly of lovely perfume (probably also bought onboard) Is this wonderful silk scarf.
There is a great profile outline of one of the ships and that is surrounded by scenes of life onboard. The colors are vibrant and I do not see any flaws. Great home Lines “castle” Logo.
A beautiful modern seascape is on the cover of this great little menu … which is written in Italian and English. these second class passengers ate well … I wonder what the roasted partridges would have tasted like(chicken?). Embossed LT logo on the cover. In great shape with browning to the background. Certainly an exquisite deco masterpiece that had too short of a life.
Awesome little sailing schedule for the Italian fleet in early 1937. Great stylized Rex / Conte Di Savoia on the covers. Covers the North Atlantic and other routes.
She and her sister survived WW2 and came back into Italian Line service post with war with the Conte Grande and Binacamano. Though the Grande and Binacamano where all rebuilt the Vulcania and saturnia did keep some of their lavish prewar Italinate interiors. This is a creat plan that is tabbed deck by deck in awesome shape.
This is a great lovely eggcup .. just perfect for your china collection! Love the great grey graphics surrounding the rim.
Outstanding heavy silver Italian Line fish fork. This is marked “Italia” on the backside… love the trident shape…perfect for spearing your fish dinner. Could use some polishing … and shows all the signs of typical onboard usage.
Great 1962 plan for the Saturnia.. she would not be in the Italian fleet much longer. The plan is made out of thin glossy paper and is in great shape.
Great deck plan for the Italian twins. They would only be in service a few more years. The plan is in great shape.. collect every month and year .. this one is from September 1973.
Nice deck plan for the lovely Auggie … dated 1967. In great ship with a light pink cover
A great fold out for the last Italian sisters. This is in excellent condition and covers the ships with pictures and praise! Stunning picture of the Ralph’s dining room … always loved the powered blue chairs and architecture against the shiny bright red flooring material. You can’t go wrong with this little foldout. A little rumple along the top edge… good for framing Includes a really great cutaway of the ships!
Wonderful little Dec 1963 deckplan for the beautiful little musicians. They carried freight and passengers for the Italian line. Great pinky glossy cover and in good shape … don’t really find these too often.
The outer edges of this little fold out are bumped .. but the pictures and plans inside of these Italian beauties are stunning. For Lloyd, the 2 ships traveled to India and the far east. The Victoria was just scrapped several years ago after many years of service and owners.. I have the most outstanding set of veneered beds from one of her FC suites.
A twilight deck plan for the GM … as she was marketed for Italia. She was built for Lloyd Triestino passenger traffic , but by the 70’s was cruising almost full time. The plan has a few bumps to the outer edge … but otherwise is in great shape.
The little Ausonia was certainly the best know ship for the Adriatica line … and she made trips and cruised all over the Mediterranean. She survived many years and just went to Alang for scrapping about 6 years ago. Buddy PK saved many lovely Luzzatti items from her fittings. The plan is in great shape!
Lovely little set of tissue plans for the tiny Italian combo liner MS Enotria. She sailed all around the Mediterranean carrying passengers and freight to many of the smaller local ports. Never a widely known vessel out on the Ocean … she has quite the popularity in her niche market for Adriatica. this set of plans is colored and shows the class barriers still in play while the ship was active.

Lovely little set of tissue plans for the Italian combo liner MS Messapia. She sailed all around the Mediterranean carrying passengers and freight to many of the local ports. Never a widely known vessel out on the Ocean … she has quite the popularity in her niche market for Adriatica.
Excellent heavy tissue deckplan for the Homeric. She stared life for Matson on the Hawaiian route and was sole to Home lines post WW2. Though she did make some crossings …She very quickly became quite successful as a cruiser and was often used on the warmer routes. She lasted until 1973 … when her engines were so worn out she was retired and scrapped. The plan has come color coding and is in great shape!
Very nice heavy tissue deck plan for the MV Italia . She started life for SAL as the Kungsholm and came to the Home Lines fleet post WW2 … Though initially used on the Atlantic … she turned out to be an early Caribbean cruiser for Home Lines and was a brilliant monetary success. She was sold out of the fleet in the mid 60’s and had a brief stint as a Bahamas hotel … and was finally retired and scrapped. The plan is in very good shape … Lovely line profile of the ship.
Lovely record of some of the most beautiful instrumental songs played by the ships band onboard the last twin Italian super liners.
This is signed on the back by the band members. The cover is in great shape and the record seems to be in good condition too (I do
not have a record player though) Pretty unique!
Great little fold out covering the summer 1962 cruises and voyages to Egypt by the wonderful little Italian ladies.
Of course they were full of Italian art .. Buddy Peter salvaged a huge Luzzatti Stair tower Panel from the Ausonia
when she was scrapped at Alang. Excellent condition.
The Victoria had such a lengthy career.. and was full of original fittings and furniture when she finally made the long journey to Alang for scrapping. She started her life in the 30’s for Union Castle and was rebuilt in the Mid 50’s for Incres… she was a success! The agency model is in great condition some of the decking paper is lifting and there are some discolorations from the original glue and shows minimal wear for its age ..even the plexi-glass case in in great shape! These models are getting harder and harder to find all the time! Shipping will need to be quoted … The calculator will not be accurate!
Pristine deck plan for the little Italian lady … she was pretty cute! The plan is color coded by class… and has excellent furniture graphics: there are even sun umbrellas and table show on the decks! Excellent condition!
Another beloved little lady for the Sitmar Line … the darling little white Fairsea. This is a great little heavy tissue/newsprint deck plan that shows all passenger decks and includes a port side profile drawing of the ship. Dated 1/64 this plan is in great condition … and the ship is advertised and fully air conditioned. Great details with furnishings show very concisely!
A second Publicity rendering for the Conte Di Savoia. Interesting this one is older … the funnels are clearly shown in LLoyd Sabaudo colors. She would never be painted as such … Mussolini combined all the Italian lines under the “Italia” banner before her construction was completed. She was the running mate for the speedy SS Rex.
