Titanic Anniversary

With the 1ooth anniversary of the Titanic ship leaving Southampton coming up on 10th April 2012, we thought you might like to see this wonderful nautical themed barometer. Made from gilt metal this barometer and thermometer comes from an Edwardian heritage, only two years prior to the Titanic's departure. The ship's wheel can be turned so that the dial points to the current days details, a playful aspect of this piece.

In memory of the Titanic there is a voyage departing Southampton today with the same number of passengers, including family members of some of those who sailed on that original fateful journey. They will be following the original Titanic itinerary.

For further information about our antiques please visit our new and improved website, or better yet, pop into our shop in the leafy suburb of Jesmond, Newcastle Upon Tyne.

You can also follow us on Twitter or Facebook for regular updates, photographs and insight into the antiques business.
