Absolutely mint coaster with a fantastic rendering of Olympia’s funnel.  Measures a little over 3″ in diameter.  A quantity available.

Luncheon plate in the tourist-class pattern from the Olympia.  Measures about 8¼” across.  Near-mint condition.  Looks like it has never been used.  2 available.

The Greek Line’s first ship, originally built as the Anchor liner Tuscania, she was acquired by the Greek Line in 1939.  Originally named Nea Hellas, she was renamed New York in 1955.  Withdrawn from service in 1959.  Excellent condition with no rust or damage.

One of the finest ships to come out of the 1950’s was Canadian Pacific’s Empress of Britain, which became the Greek Line’s Queen Anna Maria.  Silver souvenir spoon in mint condition.  No loss of plate or damage to the enamel. Measures 4½”.

Lovely coffee cup and saucer in the tourist-class pattern as used on board the Olympia and Queen Anna Maria.  Great Greek Line logo emblazoned on the side in blue.  Made by Steelite, the same company that made all of QE2’s original china in 1969.  Near-mint condition with no cracks, chips,… read more ›

Side plate in the tourist-class pattern from the Olympia.  Measures about 6¼” across. 50% of Olympia’s tourist-class cabins had private baths, which was a rarity then.  Combined with air-conditioning and cheap rates, it is easy to see why she was so popular.  Near-mint condition.  2 available.
