Sotheby's, the well known auction house, will be putting up for auction later this month a Titanic biscuit from 1912. According to Sotheby's, the biscuit was created by Carr of Carlisle for the White Star Line. Sotheby's says that Captain Morris Harvey-Clarke, who was a clearing officer in Southampton in 1912 and picked up the biscuit while on board Titanic before she sank. The biscuit apparently was handed down through the family. Sotheby's will auction off the biscuit on 25 Sept and is expected to fetch around £2,000 ($2,922 )

You can take a look at the biscuit at:

How does one perserve a buscuit for so many years?
Has it been varnished or something??? One would think it would crumble. Or does that say anything for Carr of Carlisle's baking???

Thank you for the info Mark. Very interesting indeed.
