Product Description

Heavy copper engraving plate made by Cunard White Star to print the announcements for the occasion of Parthia’s maiden arrival in NYC in April, 1948.  Parthia had the distinction of being the only liner built by Harland and Wolff for Cunard/Cunard White Star.  She and her sister Media showed such promise when they were new.  What a bold idea — intermediate ships but with TOP class service and decor.  They were very “Now Ships.”  Measures about 3½“ x 4 ¼ “.
