Hi Carl. I asked a similar question only a couple of months ago. The discussion is under the thread of Smoking Room windows here on the Technical/Design/Construction page. I think the fireplace was marble, at least it seems to be in the photos i've seen of it.

Happy hunting

Hi Carl,

You can see photos of the Smoking Room in just about every book every printed about the Titanic, and yes the fireplace is marble.

Best Regards,

In regard to the figures in the stained glass panels, located on the funnel casing, I seem to recall reading somewhere years ago that the figures were supposed to be depictions of "Flora" and "Fauna," but don't remember where that was. It was a casual remark and I only recalled it after reading on the message board. I'm probably dead in the water on this one, so don't take it as the last word.

I'm studying the windows in the First Class Smoke Room. Does everyone knows why the WSL takes eight muses and which ones???

I think that on the fireplace side were Urania and maybe Kalliope.
On the other side could be Terpsichore and maybe Melpomene.
On the starbord side could it be Erato, but the first one I could not identified. (Euterpe or Thalia)
On the port side it could be Polyhymnia and Klio.

I have studied for some time, through discussions and research on the internet to try to identify the decorative pictures in the smoking room of the TITANIC, since we have no real images, we rely on RMS OLYMPIC, and realized that are 8 muses of Mitogia Greek Roman.
Compared with their representative physical and ornamental descriptions.
Beside the marble fireplace, stained glass windows were two:
- The right was - Urania - Muse of Astronomy and Navigation

- The left was - Clio - Muse of History

On the wall in front of the fireplace, there were two more victories with muses, as follows:
- The left was - Euterpe - Muse of Lyric Poetry, Music

- The right was - Terpischore - Muse of Dance

On the left side wall of the chimney duct (port), there were two stained with muses, as follows:
- The left was - Talía - Muse of Comedy

- The right was - Calliope - Muse of Eloquence

* Note: I think it would not be women.
the first (left) would be a man painting, and the second (right) would also be a carving man.
On the right wall of the chimney duct (starboard), there were two stained with muses, as follows:
- The left was - Erato - Muse of Poetry Romantic

- The right was - Polhymnia - Muse of Sacred Hymns

* Note: No images showing the last stained glass, is a mere deduction for the harmony of the characters (muses)
