TITANIC: Authentic Scrap Fabric

Display With Stand & C.O.A

 

** Authentic Titanic Material **

During the fitting-out phase in Belfast, Ireland, this piece of dark green baize material was taken off Titanic as a souvenir by a merchant seaman. 

 

Known amongst Titanic collectors as the "Green Fabric Find," the dark green baize in this display was purportedly used on, and came directly from the Titanic. Prior to the maiden voyage, and during the fitting out phase in Belfast, Ireland, a merchant seaman who regularly crossed the Atlantic Ocean, toured Titanic and took this material as a souvenir. He gave it to his sister who used the material as curtains. She passed the "Titanic Fabric Curtains" to her daughter-in-law, Mrs. E. Ralph, of the UK in the late 1940's where it remained until 1998.

 

The fabric was later rediscovered by noted Titanic expert, Gary Robinson, who examined and authenticated it as being from Titanic. It was offered at auction and sold in August 2005. It has since been exhibited to the public at the Ronald Reagan National Librry in Simi Valley, CA and at the National Geographic Museum in Washington, D.C. 

 

This artifact will come with a small display stand & an official C.O.A. 

 

** The R.M.S. Titanic **

RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner operated by the White Star Line that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean on 15 April 1912, after striking an iceberg during her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. Of the estimated 2,224 passengers and crew aboard, more than 1,500 died, making the sinking at the time one of the deadliest of a single ship[a] and the deadliest peacetime sinking of a superliner or cruise ship to date.
