Ship Salvage:

salvaged oceangoing vessel dinnerware (cups, plates, saucers, bowls) bearing each line’s unique House Flag emblem
**We hand pick crockery during our annual buying trips, so these batches only come in every other shipment (14-18 months apart).   During our most recent buying trip in November, we had a very difficult time finding crockery so the end is near!

*Items not sold will read "available" under the picture; as always, please call or email for pricing and availability.  Sold pieces remain pictured to show the variety of pieces we have carried in the past and what we continue to search for during salvage buying trips.
