More About this Item

Description: An extremely rare actual piece of wood from a mahogany door panel from the Titanic, retrieved shortly after the tragedy as floating wreckage by the rescue ship Minia. Tongue and groove panel measures 2.25˝ x 2.75˝, and is labeled on the front in black ink, "Part of Door Picked up by cable Str. Minia from wreckage of -Str Titanic- Lost Apl 15, 1912. Lat 41° 42' 49 Long. 49° 20' 1635 perished." Relic is accompanied by a complete report from a top forensic expert who authenticated the item more than a decade ago, and who theorized that this piece of Titanic door was to one of the fabled staterooms in the epic floating palace. There were tiny pieces, originally taken from this master block bottom and displayed as limited editions of 361 with a marble base and ship model, which were quite popular and sold out quickly. This one-of-a-kind, large block has the original paint from the 1912 Minia carpenter, and is one of the best documented pieces of the Titanic ever to be offered for sale. Artifacts such as this come on the market very rarely. Provenance: The Caren Archive.
