Queen Mary Second Class Dressers

I was lucky enough to receive an email inquiring about some furniture that someone had recently acquired. I was blown away when I found out they were second-class dressers. I knew when I saw them what a special find it was.

Second Class Dressers (1)

The markings on the back are especially great they have a lot of information on there and they’re from three different second-class cabins. We were excited to see such great marking and some very good friends of ours helped us to identify where each of the dressers were located based on the many deck plans they had.  No better way to spend an afternoon.

They are an absolutely fantastic condition and I especially love the pre-war brown Formica (at least from what we can best surmise the brown Formica is pre-war) tops on the pull-out shelves.

I also received some great pamphlets that came with the dressers, these pamphlets were from the Queen Mary Auctions in the early 70s. A Chest of Drawers for $35? Pair of Nightstands for $60?  Even some mounted engine components for $19.50. Yes please!  What I wouldn’t give!

1st, 2nd and 3rd Class Dining Room Chairs

I am very proud of this picture.  All three Queen Mary dining room chairs in one photo.  Our next big project is to get the First and Second Class chairs refinished and and reupholstered.

ImageWe hope to use them for our own dining room chairs.  It would be great to put them to use the way they were meant to be.

Queen Mary Main Lounge Table – Refinished

I am very happy about this table from the Main Lounge.  I was able to have it refinished and it is beautiful.  It turned out better than I hoped for. The veneer is absolutely gorgeous.  She really was a “ship of beautiful woods”.

The burl on this piece is really extraordinary.  In my eyes it’s an art deco masterpiece. It may be a little difficult to tell from these pictures but I love the variety of wood used.  The sides are a different veneer than the base, and the trim. The top is a special material that is also very lovely and gives it that mirror-like finish.

Here you can see several of the U-shaped tables around the Main Lounge.  This is my favorite room on board the ship today as it was the room I proposed to my wife in. I also really love how the in service pictures of the Main Lounge show it as a very warm, welcoming and beautifully designed room.

The modern name for this room is Queen’s Salon
