I’ve been doing this blog for three years now and I wanted to put something special up to mark the occasion. I’ve been very fortunate the last few years to find some really great pieces and this table ranks very high on that list.
This table comes from the Third Class Lounge and is made of mahogany. It’s very simple in design, but has just enough art deco style with the rounded edge and embellished leg. In my eyes it is hands down the the best table for third class.
Its no secret that one of my favorite things to do after finding a new piece is to scour as many interior photos as I can to search for that exact piece photographed. Sometimes I get a break, more often then not I can’t find it. However, this time I lucked out thanks to Eric Sauder. Here is a photo of this table on board (as you can tell by matching the wood grains). It’s so amazing to see a photo take almost 80 years ago, and then here it is today.
Another quirky thing I like to do with my collection is make pairs and matches (for instance a chair and a nightstand from the same cabin). Here is a great matched set, three lounge tables together. One from first, one from second and one from third class. Words cannot describe how happy this makes me.
And last, but not least, the markings underneath and papers that were given out during the auctions in the late 90s.
The last three years have been an enjoyable ride with blogging about Queen Mary. This is a wonderful hobby to be in. I’ve found some amazing discoveries and made some great friends.
