Fine bone-china coffee mug by Crown Staffordshire with the famous image of Caronia by Turner on one side and double Cunard White Star house flags on the other. Sold in the gift shop on board. The mug is in great condition, no loss of gold, no chips, and no cracks. There is some very light crazing on the bottom. There is also a small white area on the ship’s hull but that was done during manufacture. I have only had one other of these, and that I kept for my collection! Super cool and super rare.
This comes from the estate of Ron Johnson, Operations Manager of Cunard in the late 1960’s. He started with Cunard in 1926 and retired in 1971. I recently purchased all of the ocean-liner items from his estate, and they will be put up on Luxury Liner Row over the next few months. There is no question that he obtained this mug on board Caronia.
