Footnotes

  • The registration number dates from 1911 and this pattern would have been employed by White Star Line on the Olympic and her sister ships Titanic and Majestic and may have been in use until the Olympic was broken up in 1935 at the time of the merger with Cunard. Never very common, this expensive pattern was likely employed in luxury suites and VIP lounges.
