BEVERLY, MASS.- Kaminski Auctions presents an important collection of Ocean Liner artifacts and ephemera amassed over a thirty-year period. This outstanding collection will be presented at auction on Sunday, October 21st starting at 10:00 am at their auction gallery along with other nautical themed additions to the sale.

Full of colorful reminders of the golden days of ocean travel from the 1880's to the present day, these important pieces of our ocean history are directly connected to the passenger and immigrant ships that visited the many historic docks along Americas’ coastline.

Never offered at auction before, this important single owner collection includes, vintage full-size life rings from such ships as RMS Queen Mary, RMS Mauretania, SS Leonardo Da Vinci, SS France, SS America, Caronia, SS Leviathan, SS President Cleveland, MV Noordam and many others.

The collection also includes historic life jackets from the RMS Queen Mary, SS United States, SS Normandie and the last voyage of the ill-fated Morro Castle.

Several hundred individual pieces, many one-of-a-kind and extremely scarce, representing 120 different ships comprise the collectable items in the sale. Ephemera includes documents autographed by ship captains, vintage deck plans, period photographs, enameled souvenir spoons and knives, ship pins, pennants, hat ribbons, framed lithographs and numerous examples of on-board stationary.

Famous ocean liners such as the Lusitania, Titanic, her sister ship Olympic, and Andrea Doria are well represented in the collection.

All of these items are fully vetted by Gary Robinson collector and researcher of maritime memorabilia. “It is rare to find such a variety of important items in one offering. The breadth and depth of the ocean liner collection is virtually unparalleled in the maritime field”, Robinson said.

This important collection will be offered for sale on Saturday October 21st, 2012 at the Kaminski Auction gallery at 117 Elliott Street, Beverly, Massachusetts.
