Various: pre-war - 2 cabin panels from mystery ship

Product Description

Ship History:  Two panels from a long-ago stateroom featuring light gray paint with a hand-painted flower and swag design around the edges.  The question is, which ship? 

But first, the details.  Each panel is approximately 4’ by 6’ and made of early plywood with a smooth veneer on front.  Besides the delicate floral decoration at top, each panel is also outlined in two light lines.  You can see by the unpainted edges that batons divided the panels.  One has a hole in the center for a light fixture.  

On back are shipyard markings.  Each has “stateroom #5” written in pencil along with a panel number, either 17 or 21.  The panels were purchased at an antique shop in Baltimore, Maryland, several decades ago.  Not coincidentally, Baltimore was home to two companies that bought and broke up old ships – Bethlehem Steel and Boston Metals Corporation. 

On the back of panel 21 is a triangular remnant of newspaper, probably stuck in there for insulation.  Printed on the remnant is an ad for a piano sale on a Saturday, December 23rd, with no year.   It just so happens that the 23rd of December fell on a Saturday in 1922.  The floral design looks like it is from that era.  Two-ex-German ships were being reconditioned at that time for United States Lines, the AMERICA (ex-AMERIKA of 1906, Hamburg American Line) and GEORGE WASHINGTON (1909, North German Lloyd).  Both ships sailed for USL into the early 1930s and went into lay-up at Sparrows Point at Point Patience, Maryland, on the Patuxent River.  Both were reconditioned for troopship duties in the early 1940s.  Both were scrapped in Baltimore after WW2.  So my belief is that the panels come from one of those ships.  Even to this day you can find fixtures from North German Lloyd ships in Baltimore antique shops. 

As you can see in the photos, the panels are in good condition.  They are stored in Lewes, Delaware.  You’ll have to either pick them up or arrange for shipment.
