Rare RMS Olympic Carved Mahogany Dining Saloon Chair – 1910
Superb quality and history.
The RMS Olympic was the sister ship to the ill fated RMS Titanic , who also had this exact style of chair on board in her second class dining saloon.
These original, extremely rare RMS Olympic second class dining saloon chairs have survived over a 100years. The original legs sadly did not survive and were replaced several years ago , but making the chair a lot easier for land use. The base on the Olympic would of been secured so that the chair did not topple or slide with the oceans movements.
We are lucky enough to have two of these historic chairs , and have resisted the temptation to re upholster the chair pads.
Both chairs still have their original numbers on the back of the moulded back rest.
In 1908 the White Star Line officially placed an order with Harland and Wolf to construct two new liners, larger than any liners yet in existence. These two ships were to be built side by side on massive newly built slipways, measuring 840ft by 270ft wide and up to 228ft high.
These two ‘sister ships’ were to be called Olympic and Titanic, and were later to be joined by a third sister ship, Britannic.
