hello everybody!
well, I'm pretty interested in some "objects" that appear in several photos of the A La Carte Restaurant, I'm talking about little "boxes" (I don´t know how to call them) near the tables.
If anyone knows about this please let me know!
Best regards,
Diego

Hi Diego,

I believe the "boxes" are ottomans, these also appear in photos of the Reading & Writing Room.

Best Regards,

Brian

Inside are metal plates to hold up the cieling and an electric heater. I think. I recall.

Hello again!
I've recently checked out the deckplans of Titanic in the discovery channel page and I found something interesting, in the part of the Restaurant, it says (for the little "boxes", I think) : "Jardineres P&S".
Any idea?
Best regards,
Diego

Jardinieres are decoratives pots for flowers or plants. These "boxes" probably did serve this purpose and I always thought they may have also been used as cupboards for various articles such as serviettes or cutlery that may have been required close at hand during dinner.

It said in my book metal columns and heaters. At least in my book. It could be wrong.
