Product Description

Ever wondered what it was like to auction an entire Ship of State?  Well, aside from a lot of work, the answer is in this huge catalog.  Nicely illustrated and worth the purchase price alone for some of the archivals that Guernsey’s trotted out from the china, silver, and crystal suppliers catalogue.  Extensive and impressive listing for this multi-day auction.  I have been told that it is nearly impossible to truly clean out an ocean liner and this was borne out last April when I visited the ss United States.  Despite having most of her interiors gutted, there are still hundreds of interesting items on board.  The catalogue runs 96 pages and contains over 3,750 lots of items.  The sale was billed as the largest auction of all time in 1984.  What wouldn’t any of us give to back in time to this auction with a truck load of money?  In very good condition.
