RMS Queen Mary Waste Basket

My wife has been wanting a waste basket from the Queen Mary for a while now.  So as a surprise for her for our new baby I made an effort to find one for her. Simple in design, but still very elegant. Her waste baskets were all square-shaped (with the art deco rounded edges) and a tapered bottom often painted black. Even Queen Mary’s trash cans are lovely.

This one is made of golden oak, but Cunard also made many waste baskets out of the beautiful veneers Queen Mary is famous for, these veneered waste baskets often matched the rooms they were used in (similar to the Observation Lounge ash bin made out of Macassar Ebony).

This trash can comes from one of the officers and engineers areas on board the ship.

I particularly enjoy the metal insert still in great condition.  I love the thoughtful touches such as a metal handle for easy removal.
