Hello

I understand that the ships fittings went here and there etc, but does anyone know what happened to the paintings from the Smoking room or other parts of the shop ? Did these also go to the same hotel/offices ...

Hi Miles,

There are four of the paintings in the offices at the Haltwhistle site that are being auctioned at the works on September 4th

You can see some of them at www.oceanlinerauctions.com

I have posted a photograph of one of the three that is in the conference room

Hi Raymond,

Were these painting originally on D Deck at the landings of the Reception Room? it would seem so by the woodwork.

Best Regards,

Brian

Brian,

That particular painting Raymond posted hung above the half landing between C and D deck. Descending from C deck (at the half landing) would have been that painting, and then you continue on to D deck. Other paintings at other half landings (inlcuding the aft staircase) were fitted in similar frames.

Regards,

Daniel.

Hi Dan,

Thanks for the input.

Were the all painted like that or were they finished in oak, before being slopped with that horrid green of course.

Best Regards,

Brian

Brian,

Originally all the paneling was oak and not painted. The only painted thing of course was the painting itself. It was only later, in about 1933 that the paneling was painted. It wasn't all painted the same everywhere, white, "buscuit" colored, blue and green were all used throughout to paint the various staircase foyer panels.

Daniel.

Hi Miles

Sorry for missing your first name off the last post must have been the fear of that knife

There is another view of the painting on my thread "Olympic fittings Auction" you may be interested in
