RMS Queen Mary First Class Restaurant – Footstool

Here we have a small footstool from the First Class Restaurant. The sycamore base matched the dining room chairs and three tier tables (dumbwaiters) in the room.

I’ve never seen any archival photos of it in use, and while I’m sure it was used by many different people for the main dining, I believe they were used most during the children’s tea parties they would have on board.

The dining room footstools also have some of the best and most embellished markings I’ve seen to date.

The modern name for this room is the Grand Salon.
