EMPRESS OF IRELAND: 1906 - Large First Class saucer from wreck - 6.5" diameter

Product Description
Canadian Pacific Line - An 6.5" diameter saucer from the First Class service aboard the ill-fated EMPRESS OF IRELAND. The ship sank in just fourteen minutes with a heavy loss of life after colliding with a collier in 1914.

A flower-and-swag patter fills the perimeter while in the center is a belted logo for Canadian Pacific Railway, owners of the ship line. The plate is back-marked Mintons China.

The saucer was recovered by the late wreck diver Bart Malone (1946-2017). Bart was an avid collector and famously said, "I dive wrecks for the purpose of restoring artifacts. I'm not a sightseer."

I visited his house/museum in New Jersey several times and was always amazed at his large collection of wreck artifacts. Bart had a larger-than-life personality. He passed away while doing what he loved best, diving on a wreck.

Good condition (for wreck china) with a few chips along the rim and wear from being under the St. Lawrence for decades.
