I remember reading on here that allocated seating was provided for first class passengers in the saloon - requests could be made by passengers to the purser for preferences/changes to this and passengers tended to be placed in terms of common interest and nationality, etc.
But, if some...
Recently, I've become interested in the use of different "styles" to convey different atmospheres within the upper-class spaces of the RMS Titanic. However, it's difficult finding reliable sources on which style each room conveyed. and even more so information on the styles themselves.
I recently won this at auction from the Olympic and thought you would all enjoy seeing it. My mom, who is pretty good at antiques, told me that it used to be for ice to hold and you put oysters or shrimp on top. I just love the clawed feet
I know that the ship's officers had their own mess as it were, but were they expected to eat in the first class dining saloon if they weren't on duty at the bridge? Did they act as hosts?

Hey , I just wanted to know , since the cherub in the grand staircase was recovered , how about the candelabra on D Deck? Was it recovered , or is it still in the reception room wreck , waiting to be found?
Of course I've seen the one genuine photograph of the FC Dining Saloon from 11*4*12. And I've seen the WSL's Olympic/Titanic brochures in vivid colour.
But does anybody know if any there are any renderings extant of the saloon with actual passengers present and dining?
