Of curious interest, there is a handwritten note on the reverse, which I decided to leave intact. It states, CARRIED ON TITANIC, 1912 BELFAST - SOTON, D. " This tag is marked by "T. Although this plate dates 1910's - mid-1920s, likely the latter, I doubt that it ever took a voyage on board the TITANIC.There was no crewmember with this name on the transfer trip, so it is possible that a Mr. Bulg received the plate as a gift and passed the story along. I would not believe the story.
Dinnerware of this pattern has been recovered from the TITANIC's debris field, as evidenced in my last photo from the TITANIC Las Vegas Exhibition. The plate is approximately 100 years old and has wear commensurate to its age and use on board some of the finest steamers ever built. The gold keys, lip bands and OSNC have moderate rubbing loss.The glazing appears fully intact, with no crazing. ITEM DIMENSIONS (approximate): 9-1/2 Dia. ITEM WEIGHT (approximate): 1 lb. In 1977, I read a book about sea disasters and one of the stories was about a White Star Liner called RMS TITANIC. I do not know why she caught my attention, but I began to read everything about her that I could find in my local library. My favorites were Walter Lord's iconic A Night To Remember , Lawrence Beesley's The Loss of the S. Titanic , and Archibald Gracie's The Truth About The Titanic. These books fueled my curiosities and whet my appetite for more knowledge. TITANIC would spur a life-long interest of literature and history. 45 years later, those original three books have grown into an eclectic library and artifact collection covering numerous topics. Every historical item is special, capturing a specific time and place in our history. Each piece is unique and has its own personal story to tell; the who, what, where, and the why that we may never know. To get these items back into circulation and onto someone else's display shelf, I would like to offer you this piece from my collection. I hope that you feel the same way and get to enjoy a piece of history from my Antiques, Steamships, and Sundries. Personal Conservator Notes on Historical Artifacts and Ephemera.
All Items are from my personal collection. These are historically invaluable treasures and I do my best to treat them as such. All items are displayed or stored in a smoke free home or storage area. I maintain a RH of 45-55%, with an ambient temperature of 74 degrees. These are the most important factors for a historic collection.
I do not use flash photography on ephemera or textiles. I do not display artifacts or ephemera in direct sunlight. I handle documents and photos with the use of white cotton gloves. I handle unstable ceramics and glass with the use of nitrile gloves.
I hand wash and dry silver goods. I limit the polishing of silver, as this process removes a layer of plating each time. However, many of the sale items will receive a light polish to enhance their appearance and defects in the photos. This item was displayed or photographed in a home with a small dog.
