Besides the White Swan Hotel in Alnwick, Northumberland, which contains interiors from the Olympic, are there any other places around the world that currently have or have had furniture or fittings from White Star liners?

Good day to you,

There is only a few examples that I can think off.

Firstly we have the RMS Adriatic. When she entered service in May 1907 she was the largest ship in service of the company up to that point. Unlike her older sister ships, she entered service with a new first class space on her boat deck. This was the first class reading and writing room, the room was fitted out with comparable chairs to the reading and writing room on-board the Olympic class liners.

When the RMS Adriatic was unfortunately scrapped at the Messrs Amakasu Gomei Kaisha in Yokohoma Japan, her fittings were auctioned off. This included her reading and writing room.In 2012 a private residence was for sale in Japan that had these fittings. This included the ceiling, the panelling and the fireplace.

Secondly we have the Britannic, the third ship of the Olympic class liners. After she briefly had served as a hospital ship she returned to Harland and Wolff and was installed with most of her interior fittings before she was called back. Most of her interiors were stripped from her and sold in 1919. This includes panelling of her second class smoking room on B-deck, panelling in the Louis XV, Harland and Wolff bedroom A and Regency style and many more. The organ of the Britannic is currently safely in the Museum of Music Automatons in Seewen, Switzerland.

There are many other interior fittings about of the Celtic, Cedric and Baltic too.

Kind regards,

Thomas
