This exact AND FULL SIZE copy was recreated by using a mold salvaged from the movie set of James Cameron's Titanic. This mold was MADE DIRECTLY from a surviving finial from the Grand Staircase of R. The original light golden oak artifact was carved in late 1910 by Harland and Wolffe master woodcarver Charles Wilson.
Charles Wilson carved the beautiful woodwork found in the most famous portions of both Olympic and Titanic's luxurious First Class areas, including the Grand Staircases of both famous vessels. If you look closely at my casting you can see still clearly see the subtle carving strokes in every detail of this work of art, which is was what made Charles Wilson the best in the world at his profession. (Please see my picture below of Charles Wilson).
You can also see slight wear which was found on the uppermost portion of the carving from passengers touching the pineapple during their graceful decent down Olympic's Grand Staircase. With the long and illustrious career of R.
Olympic, also known as "Old Reliable, " one can only imagine the famous First Class passengers such as Charlie Chaplin or the Duke and Duchess of Windsor that must have touched the carving. This is also the EXACT same style of carved pineapple that was used by First Class Passengers on board R. These are identical to the prop pineapples that Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio stood next to each other when the met at the Grand Staircase clock in the 1997 blockbuster Titanic. This piece is molded using a strong medium called "Hydrastone" which is then professionally faux finished to be an EXACT likeness of the original 1910 artifact and identical to the 1997 movie prop.
