Swedish American Line

A Swedish America Line brochure I haven’t seen before.  This is for the introduction of the post-war fleet.  Consisting of the ms Gripsholm and ss Drottningholm.  Also advertised is the recently launched ms Stockholm of Andrea Doria fame.  Thus it dates to 1946.  ms Gripsholm gets top billing with loads… read more ›

Passage rates for the Swedish America Liners ms Kungsholm, ms Gripsholm, and ss Drottningholm.  For that last truncated summer season of 1939….  Prices weren’t bad — $150 to Germany on my pick, the Drottningholm, which was the former Allan liner Virginian of 1905.  In excellent condition.

First- and second-class deck plan for the Swedish America Line’s “New De Luxe ms Kungsholm”  Dated 1953 and thus from her maiden-voyage era.  Sports five renderings.  Measures about 27″ x 23″ when open.

Full-color interiors for the ms Stockholm, ms Kungsholm, and ms Gripsholm.  Measures about 17.5″ x 23″ and in excellent condition aside from the previous owner writing the date he obtained it on the cover.  That date was 1958.  Very rare to see color interior images of the Stockholm; so definitely… read more ›

Rarely do you see large silver items from the tables of Swedish American Line.  This sugar shaker is a fantastic example of the on-board silver service, most likely from the era of Kungsholm & Gripsholm.  Mint condition.  Made by Gense.
