Product Description

Another one of those “wow” items and what I consider to be one of the most beautiful patterns produced for any steamship line.  A luncheon plate in a rare pattern used on board Cunarders in the pre-World War I period.  Very little is known about this pattern, and because of that, there has been some speculation on exactly what this pattern was used for.  There is only one known photo of this pattern on board a Cunard ship, and that was taken in a pantry on board the Mauretania of 1907.  Only a few types of pieces have been seen in this pattern.  Among them are luncheon plates, side plates, a tea cup and saucer, and a snack tray and saucer.  The most likely use for this pattern on board was as a tea service.  Extremely difficult to find.  Excellent condition with a some utensil marks.  Measures about 9.25″ across.
