Greetings All

I found this small collection of Olympic relics and memorabilia at a local auction for not much money up here in Canada. I have always been fascinated by these historic ships and was very happy to acquire the items.

The Items Include:

- 4x 9" Lino Floor tiles Red and Cream nicely framed.
-Section of Oak Railing with natural varnish wear on one side (rings I suppose).
-A candle holder from what appears to be decking (~2.5"x 4.5") and is roughly carved on one side (Bottom?).
-A ~7.5" White Star dinner plate with a gold rim (2nd Class?).
- Several post cards including a woven silk card and a 2nd Class 1913 Menu.
-An original Olympic Folding Letter Card.
-2 original on deck photos from 1925 and 1927.

Not sure if anything is overly rare.
I thought I would post the photos here to benefit from the knowledge of more experienced researchers.

Best Regards
Rob

Nice Catch!
I would say you've got 2-3 thousand dollars worth of items there.
Nicely Done!

Nice!
I see the Olympic snap shot is up for sale again. Was overbid on that one when it was up for auction online a few years ago, got only the other 2 from that same lot.

Thanks
So my $120cdn was well spent. I was shocked I got it for that little. Had to have it.
Best Regards
