PRINCIPESSA MAFALDA: 1909 - Souvenir jug w/ ship name

Product Description

Navigazione Generale Italiana - A handsome souvenir jug from the PRINCIPESSA MAFALDA.

The 3.25" tall ceramic jug features a Delft-like design with "P.SSA MAFALDA" printed on one side and line initials "N.G.I." on the other. The top comes off to reveal a cork stopper. On the bottom is either the name of the artist or manufacturer but I can't make it out.

Let's talk about the tragic PRINCIPESSA MAFALDA. Her sister, you may recall, was the laughing stock of the 20th century maritime world. The PRINCIPESSA JOLANDA was launched fully equipped to great fanfare, and promptly capsized when she hit the water. The wreck was scrapped on the spot. Fortunately the PRINCIPESSA MAFALDA managed to stay upright, at least during her launch.

At the time of her maiden voyage in 1909, the PRINCIPESSA MAFALDA was considered the most luxurious vessel on the Genoa - South American route. She boosted an entire deck's worth of ornate public rooms and even was fitted with elevators.

But nineteen years later a fading PRINCIPESSA MAFALDA was on her last crossing before being scrapped. On October 25, 1927, the port propeller shaft broke while the vessel was off the coast of Brazil. The shaft ripped a large hole through the hull . Efforts to seal the watertight door to the shaft were unsuccessful because the door was too rusty. As the ship settled by the stern, panic broke out among the Third Class passengers as they struggled to reach the boat deck. In the end, despite being in calm seas with warm water, despite the close proximity of rescue ships, and despite taking five hours to sink, 314 people died out of 1,259 onboard, make the disaster the worst in Italian maritime history.

Very good condition with a little chip on the rim.
