Description

A very pretty collectable silver plated spoon which was a souvenir from the RMS Queen Elizabeth. We believe the spoon to date circa 1940s/50s. It comes with its original box

The top of the spoon bears an image of the RMS Queen Elizabeth together with ship's name 'RMS Queen Elizabeth' nicely set in blue enamel.
The back of the spoon is marked EPNS
To the top of the box is the wording in silver coloured lettering 'R.M.S QUEEN ELIZABETH'

RMS Queen Elizabeth was an ocean liner operated by the Cunard Line. With her sister ship Queen Mary she provided luxury liner service between Southampton in the United Kingdom and New York City in the United States, via Cherbourg in France. She was also contracted for over 20 years to carry the Royal Mail thus enabling her to carry the prestigious Royal Mail Ship (RMS) designation, as the second half of the two ships' weekly express service.

While being constructed in the mid-1930s by John Brown and Company at Clydebank, Scotland, she was known as Hull 552 but when launched, on 27 September 1938, she was named in honour of Queen Elizabeth, who was then Queen Consort to King George VI and in 1952 became the Queen Mother. Queen Elizabeth was the largest passenger liner ever built at that time and for 56 years thereafter. She first entered service in February 1940 as a troopship in World War II, and it was not until October 1946 that she served in her intended role as an ocean liner.

Queen Elizabeth was sold to a Hong Kong businessman who intended to convert her into a floating university cruise ship. In 1972, while undergoing refurbishment in Hong Kong harbour, she caught fire under mysterious circumstances and was capsized by the water used to fight the fire. In 1973, her wreck was deemed an obstruction, and she was partially scrapped where she lay.

DIMENSIONS: Length: Just over 4 inches
CONDITION: The condition of the spoon is very good. It has been hand polished to a lovely presentable effect. The box overall in a reasonable condition with two corners of the lid slightly damaged.

Please note that as the items we sell are antique or vintage, most of them will have been used for the purpose that was intended. Therefore they may have signs of wear in keeping with age and use. Any damage will be described with accompanying photographs.
