This examples comes from the famous paint factory at Haltwhistle the was kitted out in the 1930's with countless articles from the famous White Star liner, RMS "Olympic". For more information on this recent discovery of "Olympic" decking please visit this blog I have written concerning its story & history. I had a skilled master craftsman remove the later nails and apply a simply layer of wax and polish to show off the beauty of the woods grain. He then marked & stamped each piece with the following wording. With period style original metal stamps, contemporary to that used on board the building of the "Olympic" class. Two differing types of wood were amongst the lots, an oak type wood used for internal flooring, and large scale pitch pine decking from the liners beautiful open decks. In a world where there are a literal sea of fakes on the open market pertaining to the Olympic & Titanic, it is nice to be able to look at an article, no matter how humble, and be confidant in its provenance, knowing its total story from 1911 until the present day. Each piece shows obvious signs of ware and tear for being 100+ years old, see pictures, I will be listing the ships timbers over the next few days.
