Dean has autographed the print clearly at the top of the page in black marker. Millvina Dean was the youngest survivor from the sinking of the Titanic and was also its last survivor.Dean, her mother, and brother were placed in Lifeboat 10 and were among the first steerage passengers to escape the sinking oceanliner. Her father, however, did not survive, and his body, if recovered, was never identified. Millvina passed away aged 97 in May 2009. Titanic Autographs were the last people to do a commercial signing with her.
A number of items on this site are signed by survivors and crew of the Titanic and the occasional item signed by people that perished on that fateful night (obviously signed before the Titanic trip). We met Millvina Dean and asked her to sign some items for us. She explained to us that she wanted to be paid for the signatures which wasnt a problem to us and from there on we decided to expand our love of Titanic and turn into a commercial venture. We did the last ever commercial signing with Millvina before she passed away. One thing to consider is particularly with the signed items there is not an ever ending supply of memorabilia.Milvina did sign quite a few hundred items for us over a period of time; however in time these will eventually go. We are senior board directors of Aftal which is responsible for stopping fakes and forgeries on the memorabilia market, particularly in the UK. We follow the same ethics and stringent authenticity procedures with all our memorabilia. We hope you will cherish your piece of Titanic memorabilia. To us Titanic holds a special place in history of mankind across the world. It has a certain romance about it and there has never been so much interest in any tragedy as much as the Titanic. We thank you for visiting our site and we look forward to your communication.
