Costa Marketing produced some of the finest brochures in the later 70’s and 80s … and this one for the Daphne sure is stunning. There are 16 pages of color interior photos as well as color coded deck plans. A beautiful cruise ship, she started life basically as a freighter for the Port Line. The text and information is written in 3 different languages: Italian, German and English: From 1979 when she joined the Costa fleet Excellent condition.
Probably the best brochure ever done for this later Home Liner … the SS Atlantic. Designed and based on the marvelous Oceanic of 1965. The interiors renderings are magnificent! These are somewhat hard to find … a few nicks to the cover.
The ultimate cruise line souvenir for the 70’s and 80’s were these little melamine trays. They are almost indestructible and offer the use a myriad of uses. I use mine as coin trays as well as around the house for coasters. Always great graphics … lots of folks relaxing in the lounge on some beautiful furniture!

Each shipping line had their own glass ware and china designs and the Italian Line was beautifully done with the crenulated logo and Italia etched onto the bowl of the glass. Simply stunning and excellent condition.

Great fold out for these 2 LT sisters. White cover and great cover graphics on the outside, lovely color interior and life onboard photos on the inside. Great condition! I have a lovely set of twin beds from the Victoria that I dearly love!

Outstanding heavy metal dish for the lovely Federico C. The ship was the first new build for Costa and eventually was sold off to Premier as the Big Red Boat. High quality and excellent condition.
Super nice dish for the Costa Rivera… once Lloyd Triestino’s Guglieimo Marconi she was rebuild for Costa in 1985. Super nice and made by Sambonet and includes info card.
Probably the ultimate souvenir you could have from your voyage onboard would be one of these high quality and detailed models. These were probably also used at local travel agencies.
Excellent condition! $125
3 great photos.. the first is an artist’s rendering of the ship … a lovely drawing of the ship steaming along calm seas. The second and third show the captain and a gentleman pictured next to the funnel on her maiden voyage. I am sure the gentleman has to be an important Home Lines official to enjoy the company of the ships master on Her Maiden Arrival in NYC.
Lovely photo of the ships Maiden arrival into NYC. Fully flagged and tug boats off the starboard side, the ship looks pristine!
One of the photos shows the lovely ship docked in Genoa the other is of her Lido Bar. I love the furniture… look at the 3 legged tables, LOVE! Only the furniture side shown.
One used and one unused postcard showing the Angelina. The used card is dated 1976 …a few years later she would be a burned out hulk. The unused card shows her anchored at Nassau.
Once Bill moved on from the Dover style picture books .. he worked with Carmania press to offer the next series of Passenger Ships “insert county here” style books. these are every bit as nice as the earlier Dover books .. and maybe even have a little more info about each ship and general history. full of great B&W photos. In great shape and signed by Bill on the inside to one of his shippie friends.
Excellent double set of playing cards … still sealed in their cellophane wrappings. One set has a lovely Yellow Greek fret border .. the other blue!. I loves this white hulled queen of the Caribbean!
Lovely baggage tag for the lovely Homeric. She was one on the multiple named Matson liners that was sold off after WW2 and made Home Lines a lot of cash cruising around warm climates . The tag is in excellent condition. Bright colors and ship profile against a sunny disc.
3 nice daily activity programs for the ship ..she had only been in service about 2 months .. so she was still spanking new and pristine. lots going on onboard the ship …These are great!
Great little ashtray for the lovely little intimate Victoria … bright and cheery blue and yellow colors … much like the seas and beaches of the Caribbean she visited.
Good deck plan for the flagship Leo. She was a fuel guzzler and closed out the traditional Italian Liner services in the later 19709’s and then cruised solo for a bit until being laid up and destroyed by fire. Good condition deck plan with typical wear from use.
Great heavy china side dish form on o the home Liners! The dish is Hutschenreuther (try typing that fast) china from Germany … Heavy and good quality //excellent condition.
Nice little Loving cup form a “Home” liner …. probably given away on board as a prize for some event … like a costume party or crossword challenge. Nice little crown logo on the wood base …needs polishing
Great brochure for these pre WW2 motor ship survivors! Love the post war interior space photographs …though there certainly were some rooms left in their original prewar design (though revamped a little of course). Great cover ART … but with a little scuffing to the covers.
Lovely little ticket and paperwork folder for the Italian line … Probably dates from the 50’s or 60’s … like new!
