WELCOME TO PURSERSLOCKER'S WEEKLY LISTINGS. I SELL A WIDE RANGE OF QUALITY OCEAN LINER AND 20TH CENTURY DECORATIVE ARTS, SOME ITEMS COME DIRECT FROM MY COLLECTION, WHILST OTHERS ARE RECENT DISCOVERIES AND ARE FRESH TO THE COLLECTORS MARKET. I REGULARLY SELL ITEMS OF FURNITURE AND FIXTURES FROM THE GREAT OCEAN LINERS OF YESTERYEAR, INCLUDING OLYMPIC, MAURETANIA AND THE QUEENS SO PLEASE CHECK MY OTHER LISTINGS.

WHITE STAR LINE, CAST IRON DECK BENCHES, MANUFACTURED BY CRUIKSHANK'S OF DENNY, C-1911, ESPECIALLY CHOSEN FOR USE ON BOARD THE'OLYMPIC' &'TITANIC'. THE TWO ENDS FEATURE FANTASTIC HIGH EDWARDIAN DETAIL, TYPICAL OF THE OLYMPIC CLASS. WE HAVE BEAUTIFUL SCROLLING DESIGNS, CAPPED OFF WITH STYLIZED DOLPHIN FEET. THREE CLEAR BOLT HOLES TO EACH CAN BE SEEN TO ATTACH THIS TO THE DECK.

AT SOME STAGE EVEN THE MAURETANIA SPORTED SEVERAL OF THESE BENCHES, WHICH IN TURN WERE LATER TRANSFERRED TO QUEEN MARY IN 1936 AND SAT ON THE AFT TENNIS COURT THAT SAT ON TOP OF THE 2ND CLASS MAIN LOUNGES ROOF, IN FRONT OF THE VERANDAH GRILL. IT IS UNDERSTOOD THAT BOTH BRONZE SAND CAST AND CAST IRON EXAMPLES WERE USED ON TITANIC, THE BRONZE EXAMPLES ONE PRESUMES WERE USED ON THE FIRST CLASS OUTER PASSENGER DECKS, THE CAST IRON EXAMPLES ELSEWHERE, MANY CAN CLEARLY BE SEEN IN LARGE NUMBERS TOWARDS THE STERN IN THE 3RD CLASS OPEN DECKS ON BOTH SHIPS, IT IS BELIEVED THESE ARE THE CAST IRON EXAMPLES, AS LATER PHOTOS OF OLYMPIC'S OPEN DECKS SHOW THESE TO BE CLEARLY STREAKED WITH RUST.

SIMILAR BRONZE EXAMPLES OF THIS BENCH DESIGN HAVE BEEN RECOVERED FROM THE TITANIC WRECK SITE SEE PICTURES OF SIMILAR EXAMPLES ON THE SEABED AT THE WRECK SITE AND A RECOVERED END. THE BENCH COMES WITHOUT ANY WOOD, BUT DOES COME WITH LATER SCREWS AND BOLTS, THESE WOULD PROBABLY DATE FROM THE 1930'S WHEN THE BENCH WAS SHORTENED. EACH END IS IN PERFECT, YET UN RESTORED CONDITION, IF THEY WHERE SHOT BLAST THE WOULD COME UP LIKE NEW. FOR UK, COLLECTION FROM MYSELF IS POSSIBLE ON THE SOUTH COAST (SOUTHAMPTON/PORTSMOUTH AREA) OR ORBITAL LONDON FOR FUEL COSTS. EACH PIECE MEASURES:- 32" X 28". ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ASK. I DO NOT CONTROL THE BRITISH POSTAL SERVICE WHICH AT PRESENT SEEMS TO BE HIGHLY UNRELIABLE. Get Supersized Images & Free Image Hosting.
