Authentic Titanic Wreck Wood

- Each pieces comes on a quality display with C.O.A!

 

After the Titanic disaster, the Cable Ship Minia was contracted by White Star Line to recover the unfortunate dead. On board was carpenter, William J. Parker, who also took wreckage (flotsam) from the sea. Much of the Titanic wreck wood he famously fashioned into useful items such as furniture, picture frames, and boxes. Some he kept, while other pieces he gave away as gifts.

 

Parker made this liquor cabinet from the wheelhouse door and other types of salvaged wood, like oak and pine. He gave it to Minia's Chief Officer James Adams. It was passed down to Adam's grandson Gerald Mullin, who kept it in the family until 1998 when it entered the collection of Titanic Concepts Inc.

 

This well documented cabinet has been displayed at a Orlando, FL Titanic museum, then later at the Titanic Museum in Branson, MO.

 

The Titanic wood plank shown here was a shelf inside of that cabinet. It was removed and offered as an individual piece in 2005. It is authentic yellow pine wood from the Titanic, indicating it's "most likely" from the deck, presumably ejected at the breaking point just before the final plunge. It has been exhibited to the public at the Ronald Reagan National Library in Simi Valley, CA and at the National Geographic Museum in Washington D.C. The piece of wreck wood you now own was taken from this redwood stained shelf. The aforementioned information is true, and the item presented is authentic to the best of my expert knowledge and experience, developed over 20 years of Titanic collecting and research.

 

- The R.M.S. Titanic 

RMS Titanic was a British traveler liner, worked by the White Star Line, which sank in the North Atlantic Ocean on 15 April 1912 subsequent to striking an icy mass during her launch from Southampton, UK, to New York City. Of the assessed 2,224 travelers and team on board, more than 1,500 passed on, which made the sinking one of the deadliest for a solitary boat up to that time. It stays the deadliest peacetime sinking of a superliner or journey transport. The fiasco drew public consideration, gave fundamental material to the calamity film classification, and has propelled numerous creative works.

 

RMS Titanic was the biggest boat above water at the time she entered administration and the second of three Olympic-class sea liners worked by the White Star Line. She was worked by the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast. Thomas Andrews, the boss maritime draftsman of the shipyard, passed on in the catastrophe. Titanic was under the order of Captain Edward Smith, who went down with the boat. The sea liner conveyed probably the richest individuals on the planet, as well as many migrants from Great Britain and Ireland, Scandinavia, and somewhere else all through Europe, who were looking for another life in the United States and Canada.

 

The five star convenience was intended to be the zenith of solace and extravagance, with an exercise room, pool, libraries, posh cafés, and rich lodges. A powerful radiotelegraph transmitter was accessible for sending traveler "marconigrams" and for the boat's functional use. The Titanic had progressed security highlights, like watertight compartments and somewhat enacted watertight entryways, adding to its standing as "resilient".

 

Titanic was outfitted with 16 raft davits, each equipped for bringing down three rafts, for a sum of 48 boats; she conveyed just 20 rafts, four of which were folding and demonstrated hard to send off while she was sinking. Together, the 20 rafts could hold 1,178 individuals — about a portion of the quantity of travelers ready, and 33% of the quantity of travelers the boat might have conveyed at full limit (predictable with the oceanic security guidelines of the period). At the point when the boat sank, a large number of the rafts that had been brought down were exclusively about half full.
