A large ash and ebonized wood jardiniere with lions mask handles and retaining its original liner, a label to the base confirms this is from the Mauretania and is one of 6 ash containers for cabin sun desk ent forward. RMS Mauretania was an ocean liner designed by Leonard Peskett and built by Swan, Hunter & Wigham Richardson at Wallsend, Tyne and Wear for the British Cunard Line, and launched on 20 September 1907. At the time, she was the largest and fastest ship in the world until the launch of the RMS Olympic. Mauretania became a favourite among her passengers. After capturing the Blue Riband for the fastest transatlantic
crossing during her 1909 inaugural season, Mauretania held the speed record for twenty-two years.
Mauretania was designed to suit Edwardian tastes. Its interior was designed by Harold Peto, architect, and was fitted out by several London companies, with twenty eight different types of wood used in her public rooms, along with marble, tapestries, and other furnishings.
Cunard withdrew Mauretania from service following a final eastward crossing from New York to Southampton in September 1934, the voyage was made at an average speed of 24 knots.
