A great piece of maritime history by Frank H. Mason - Cunard Lines R.M.S. Aquitania framed monochrome lithograph in its original oak frame with Cunard Lines carved into the wood. With an illustrious history, Cunard's four-funnel ship the Aquitania was build in 1913 and designated as a luxury passenger ship with her sisters the Lusitania and the Mauritania. In the advent of WWI she was stripped of all her luxury fittings and commissioned as a Royal Maritime Ship (see history below.) She saw two world wars until she was decommissioned in 1950. In her 36 years of service, Aquitania survived military duty in both world wars and was returned to passenger service after each. Aquitania's record for the longest service career of any 20th-century express liner stood until 2004 when Queen Elizabeth 2 became the longest serving Cunard vessel. - Shipping will be quoted as requested because of variables, please contact me.

From the first time I watched a classic movie as a young girl, and watched Astaire and Rogers float across a dance floor I have loved art deco design, art, fashion and jewelry. So bold and beautiful, and so different from anything that came before it, art deco changed social and design sensibilities forever.A lifetime collector of high quality antiques and vintage, I started by making contacts, researching and learning. Picking the best of the best, I live with art deco and vintage decor and used to wear the fashions of the day. To say that I feel in love is an understatement. I reveled in the fact that I was able to reflect my unique style and sensibilities with a marriage of old and new. What you see in my shop is my personal collection. Since I was in my teens I have bought what pleases me, what I find beautiful and unique, and the things that speak to me on a creative level. I hope that you can see and feel the passion and love that I feel for antiques and vintage pieces and share with you. You will find art deco, collectible and vintage fine art paintings, original illustrations and magazine covers, home decor, marble, alabaster and metal lamps, nude flapper table lamps, sterling silver decorative accents and tableware for the home and entertaining, designer and estate jewelry and fine vintage watches in my shop.
