Various Ships - Cunard wool steamer rug - excellent condition

Product Description

Cunard Line: A 52" by 60" wool steamer rug as used post-war aboard Cunard liners.

Embroidered along one corner is "Cunard Line" in a flowing banner and the number 2741. Since the lettering was hand done, note that the embroider forgot the "L" in line!

Since these rugs were popular souvenirs for passengers to swipe, deck stewards had to account for them every night. If a steamer rug turned up missing, either the steward used the number to track down the culprit or the cost came out of his next pay check. However, after a judicious tip by a passenger, sometimes a steamer rug would show up magically in their cabin.

The attached photo shows two steamer rugs similar to this one. A steward is about to tuck in a lady with the red side while in the upper right corner you can see a snippet of the blue side with the edge of the flowing banner just visible. A different style steamer rug is on the chair next to the lady.

Cuddle up on long winter nights with history!

Excellent condition with no holes.
