Oh, I see. I had scrolled up to the top of the page trying to figure it out--guess I should have checked the archives. Thanks for the information.

The ball continues to roll... I believe Edwin Kimball preserved the silk necktie he wore during the sinking. I don't know its current whereabouts.
The diamond ring which Eloise Smith made such a special effort to save from her cabin remained in her possession until the mid-1920s, when her home was burglarized.
One must ponder where it is today...

Hello Mr.Powell

Nikola Lulic saved the spectacles he was wearing. They are now owned by his grandson.

These are quite different words than three years
ago when you had a talk with Mr. Jon Baddeley
Bonhams after auction sale.
Nikola LULIC wasn`t Lusitania survivor he picked up by lifeboat no 15 and in the early morning
transfered to Carpathia.
Eyeglasses are owned by his great grandson not
as you said grandson.
Excuse me for this notice.

Sincerely,

Marko LULIC ggson

Indeed, Nikola Lulic is registered as a third class passenger aboard Titanic who was rescued in lifeboat #15. His residence was listed as Chicago. He was 27 years old when he boarded Titanic in Southampton.

What private discussion? What are you talking about?
Mr.Powell wrote just a couple sentences on this
PUBLIC place and I answered. Nothing more.
In question is just true to ons`e word.
I know my words are sometimes very strong and
sharp but always true.
Thank you.

Excuse me Mr. Lulic, but I never mentioned Nikola Lulic as being a Lusitania survivor. Furthermore, I had good reason to question the authenticity of the spectacles. Bonhams has sold several dubious Titanic "artifacts" in the past and the provenance behind each is worth but a grain of salt. Simple review their previous sales and you will find a multitude of blatantly fake items. Take for instance the white star deck chair that was purportedly removed from the Titanic at Queenstown by a photographer or the OSNC sugar caster which was supposedly taken from the cafe parisien. Review the various lots that included silver and silverplate items manufactured by Arthur Price for use aboard White Star Line vessels. There is no solid evidence that such a firm was ever commissioned by the White Star, nor do these items resemble the genuine patterns used by the line.
While I was researching the spectacles and speaking with Mr. Baddeley, I was in correspondence with a well-respected Swiss Titanic collector/historian who had contacts with some of Lulic's descendents who, when questioned about the spectacles, replied by saying that Nikola never wore glasses nor did the family acknowledge anything that he had saved from the sinking. I believe the relative was one of Lulic's daughters or grand daughters but I can't recall offhand.
If you would like to continue this discussion, please email me privately.

Your opinion in 2006.was probablly fake item.
-------------------------------------------------

Nikola Lulic saved the spectacles he was wearing. They are now owned by his grandson.
Your opinion in 2008.
-------------------------------------------------
I am agreed with you. Today existing many,to many artifacts with poor provenance witch worth is smaller than a grain of salt.
Please tell me what hapend? Why you changed
opinion about glasses during last two years.
Your well respected Swiss Titanic collector had a contact probably with Nikola`s older daughter
besides /ignorant old woman without elementary
school/.By me that wasn`t best way to explore
authenticity.

Finally I have had a special live talk show on
NATIONAL TV RTS /95 Th anniversary of sinking/
where I had a story about Nikola`s origin,life,
traveling and my artistik work related to Titanic.
What do you think,is there any possibility to say
any lie in front of couple milion watchers.
IT COULD BE VERY DANGEROUS.
Thank you again.

If you would like to continue this discussion,I will explain every detail of his life what I know.Please email me privately.
