Titanic Deckchair could sell for $57,000

Belfast Telegraph

A deckchair removed from the Titanic just moments before it set sail from Cork could fetch up to around ?57,000 when it goes under the hammer, experts predicted last night.

Specialists with Bonhams and Butterfields in the US expect the chair, taken from the first-class Promenade deck of the Belfast-built liner, to go for between $75-100,000 ($43-57,000) when it is auctioned off next month.

The original beech framed chair, one of only six left in the world, is to be sold off at the auctioneer's annual Marine Paintings, Ship Models, Scrimshaw and Ocean Liner Memorabilia Sale at the Larz Anderson Auto Museum in Brookline, Massachusetts, on May 7.
