Contains a Nice little 4 line ditty about the lovely Gripsholm. I can imagine this being handed out in the lounge right before sing a long festivities. Lovely ship profile … and 3 crown seal on the cover. Printed on orange-ish fiber paper .. well done little amenity.
Very old and interesting set of Cards for the interwar 3 funneled Statendam. The box is well used and the cards have been played with but over all they are very nice. The design on the back of the cards does not show the ship … though the image appears on the box
One of the most spectacular pin dishes ever! Love the progression of Bremen profiles … from the sailing/ screw steamer of 1858 to the 1959 Converted Pasteur and last flagship. The golden smokestack accents are icing on the cake. Pristine Condition.
A very nice set of deck plans … First class and Tourist from 1961, a colored cruise deck plan from 1969 and an facts booklet for the Lovely 1959 Flagship Rotterdam. Lots of great information and excellent visuals are found here. All in excellent condition. I didn’t have a HUGE appreciation for this ship … until I was had the chance to see color images of her interiors in Buddy PK’s Photo collection and I have been hooked ever since! I also had a once in a life time opportunity to visit her in the fall of 2014 and I can report she is truly stunning.
Lovely ashtray .. probably swiped in the 60’s. Great condition!
Great ashtray … these could have been swiped by the thousands from the Volendam/ Veendam/ Statendam or others all throughout the 70’s and 80’s.
Very common little souvenir for any Swedish American liner! I have a few of these in my own collection and use them to hold other little liner an ship bits. Like new condition. with slightly different logos
Lovely pin tray for the Statendam … with the change in funnel graphics , tis dates from after her “Cinderella” refit of the early 1970s’ when she switched to full time cruising. Lovely image of one of my favorite liners. Excellent condition.
Really cool booklet all about the darling of the Dutch. the booklet contains all sorts of historic info about the ship as well as nautical terms etc. Very Informative with lovely Profile of the ship in b/w on the cover.
Just a lovely little ship dish for the HAL cruiser. She started life for Mooremac went to HAL, then off to other owners back to HAl and off again… Long an interesting Life. Gold trimmed and in excellent condition.
Interesting little item… a nylon packet with HAL’s 2 largest ships shown on each side. This looks like a large matchbook … but inside is a packet of new “white” nylons. Interesting!
Wonderful little pin dish from the onboard gift shop. This dish is in excellent condition … certainly betther than the ship itself which burned and sank while on a cruise off Alaska.
Awesome paperweight for the last Kungsholm! I believe this to be crystal .. it is way too heavy to just be glass.
Mighty starboard profile is shown … this is in excellent shape thought the gold lettering of the ship name is wearing away. There is still a Nautiques price tag on the side ($55) from years ago before Leon (from Atlanta)sold Nautiques to Don in Vermont
Large set of silver and blue plans for the Sagafjord as she was sailing for Cunard. Dated 4/89 the plan is in great shape with a tiny water spot at one of the fold lines. Stock photo.
Lovely inaugural book for the last Veendam … 4th in HAL’s history. The book covers the building, interiors, artwork and lots of info on the ship. the book is in excellent shape and full of photos and info!
Large deckplan printed for the Vistafjord when she was sailing for Cunard. Not soon after she would be renamed Caronia: Printed in Blue and silver the plan is in excellent condition, dated 4/89.
Outstanding heavy tissue deckplan for the lovely new Rotterdam dated January 1959. Lovely profile of the ship which shows each deck as the ship zips through the ocean. There are a couple of b/w photos of models on board … one group playing shuffleboard … and there couple in there nicely appointed cabin. Very good condition! Buddy PK just visited the ship in Rotterdam and reports all is well onboard!
Lovely deckplan for the little one class combo liner. Such a cute little lady … the deckplan is written in 4 languages. Excellent condition. . Dated September 1965
Nieuw Amsterdam: A wonderful maiden year brochure that was done to advert her amazing modern Interiors and artworks. She was truly a Dutch masterpiece. HAL kept her pristine and spotless until the last year or so of her budget cruising life. Some bumps and yellowing to the outside cover … but inside chock-a-block full of renderings and photos!
Excellent schedule for 1955 showing ships such as Nieuw Amsterdam and Maasdam and Ryndam and others … spotless just like the Dutch liners.
NAL’s answer to cruising in the mid 60’s the Sagafjord. She was a splendid ship with live for Cunard and others after NAL sold off thier cruise interests She was retired from service not too long ago, another victim of SOLAS regulations. Complete deck … barely used from what I can tell
Lovely heavy china cruise dish from the Vistafjord .. NAL’s last ship. She was later acquired by Cunard (along with Sagafjord) and later revived the Famous cruising name of Caronia. She was just recently retired from Saga cruises. The dish is in excellent condition… great for coins , pins or other little items around an enthusiast’s home.
These heavy pin type dishes were all the rage for souvenirs aboard many cruise line vessels in the late 80’s to mid 90’s. This one is from an 11 day cruise for the Sagafjord. In perfect shape!
Just the best brochure done for the ship >..EVER. It is cram packed with glorious photography of the public room and artwork. I was lucky enough to spend 4 hours on the Ss Rotterdam … most of these interiors are intact and look just as stunning today … well worth the visit!
Perfect pin dish for the spotless little Statendam. She was the HAL flagship in the late 50’s until the Rotterdam came on the scene and took her spot. She made lots of money for her owners cruising .. and the image on the dish is after her early 70’s “Cinderella” refit. Perfect condition!
