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 fold out explaining the gourmet selections found on a typical Italian line crossing. Sample menus .. I’d gain 10 pounds for sure! Great condition and lovely graphics.
Lovely little folder for the Italian line and there reviving NY services… Conte Binacamano, Vulcania and Saturnia are there 2 main ships mentioned here. The red white and green colors are pure Italian and who could not love the motorship graphic on the cover! Pretty good shape with minor scuffing
Nice good sized AT fir Costa lines… Probably swiped for an onboard lounge. It is brass colored .. but seems to be more like copper weight and feel. Lovely Costa logo and outline of the Frederico C in the back ground.
Tragic and dramatic photo of the Doria right before her final plunge to the bottom. Lots going on in this photo. The sea is broiling around the sinking ship … interesting a vessel is almost tight on top of the turbulence … Some unused lifeboats are floating around in the debris field and the plane buzzes overhead allowing press photographers a full view of the action below. A couple of “age” spots on the photograph.
Great folder in Excellent condition … covers the 1973 season …. for the Raffello, Michelangelo, Leonardo Da Vinci and the C. Colombo. Great photos and of course lots of 1973 info.
Wonderful little plan for the beautiful Homeric. Heavier tissue plan in green and white. Includes great plans and photos
Both were rebuilt Dutch “superliners” and both had tragic ends. The set of card are in good shape.
Swiped from onboard … a lovely green ashtray with gold line lettering. The gold is in great shape with maybe a tiny bit of loss and the heavy green glass is perfect. Great shape… probably for one of the Italian beauties!
Needs to be cleaned.
Lovely metallic souvenir dish for the Andrea C. This is not silver but nice heavy metal that is etched to be 2 tones. Lovely profile of the lovely little Andrea C. really neat little item!
Lovely melamine tip try for the Homes Lines Doric showing the form and after decks. Once the pride of the Zim lines as the Shalom… the ship went to Homes lines and became their Doric where she cruises for many years before going to yet other owners. In like new condition!
Lovely program with lovely cover art for the entertainment in the ballroom Feb 9th 1953. Music by Mozart and many others performed by the ships orchestra and special guest entertainers. There are a couple of small punch holes where this was once mounted is someone’s album.
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.
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.
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!
