Description :

"Ship's Chair From The White Star Line Rms Olympic"
A beautiful carved mahogany dining chair, from the Second Class dining saloon from the White Star Line RMS Olympic, and identical to the ones that were on board of the sister ship the Titanic. It is made from mahogany, carved in the Art Nouveau style and mounted on a cast iron base, which was screwed to the floor. The inset seat with the original fabric. The Olympic was built before the Titanic and was in use from 1911 to 1935. Her history and images of her dining rooms, showing similar chairs, can be easily found online. It is likely this chair was made in the Harland and Wolff workshops in Belfast. The ship was broken up in 1935 and much of her fittings and furniture sold off. Chairs from the Olympic do not come to the market often. Circa 1911.
