Product Description

Cunard Line:  A wool steamer rug as used post-war aboard the QUEENs.

Embroidered along one corner is "Cunard Line" in a flowing banner and the number D46.  Since these rugs were popular souvenirs for passengers to swipe, deck stewards had to account for each one 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.  Although, 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!   

The wool is in excellent condition while the black leather binding has hardened with age.
