Various: pre-war - 1840s Boston Mails plate w/ "Gentlemens Cabin"

Product Description

Cunard Line:  An 8.25” plate from the "Boston Mails" service in English Staffordshire china featuring a view of the “Gentlemens Cabin.”  This china was not used onboard the Cunard ships but was created by a Staffordshire pottery in 1841 to capitalize upon the success of Cunard's groundbreaking transatlantic service with their initial quartet of steamers, BRITANNIA, ACADIA, COLUMBIA, and CALDONIA, all from 1840. 

 Interior views of the earliest steamers are hard to find so the image is worth studying.  Four well-dressed men are enjoying the warmth of a coal fire.  Two are sitting by a well-stocked table complete with linen, silver serving pieces, plates, and silverware.  An oil lamp illuminates the cabin.  Richly patterned carpet covers the floor.  Paneled walls and decorative columns give the feel of an estate house.  Too bad that in actuality the Gentlemen's Cabin would have been swaying madly in rough seas with floors (and carpets) awash in leaking water. 

On the plate's back is "Boston Mails" above the image of a ship that is probably the BRITANNIA. 

Excellent condition.
