A stunning rare Art Deco circular dining tabl
RMS Mauretania was the English-built sister of the Scottish-built Lusitania. Entering service on 16 November 1907, she was the Cunard Line flagship before the First World War.
One of the most famous and most popular Atlantic liners, Mauretania was also the fastest ship on the North Atlantic.
After a period of friendly rivalry with Lusitania, Mauretania captured the speed record and held it from 1909 to 1929.
This rare table made in mahogany and walnut is from the 1st class dining room, and being Art Deco we can date it clearly to the 1929 refit of the ship.
This table has only recently been discovered, and then restored to its former glory in our workshops.
It has an ingenious mechanism which allows the mahogany fiddle rail to rise and fall for calm, rough, and very rough settings, keeping your plates and cups within the table area !
It also has two original stencilled 'Mauretania' labels to the underside of the base.
