Product Description

Beautifully patterned linoleum floor tiles in alternating shades of green and cream as used in first-, second-, third-class, and crew areas of the Olympic. Archival photographs of the liner’s interior show these tiles in use in the barber shop and other public areas. Tiles of this identical pattern have been recovered from the wreck of the Titanic and have been found in the remains of the wheelhouse of the Britannic.  The bottom photo shows the tiles before and after cleaning.  Each tile is approximately 6″ square.

All the tiles show some chipping and wear from the time spent at the factory.  Remember these are nearly 100 years old.   As we get further and further from the auction, these tiles are getting harder to find.
