UNITED STATES LINES - China 10 3/8" SHOWPLATE.
This is the famous ‘Gold Eagle’ face plate or show plate from the S.S. United States.
When you sat down in First Class they were there in front of you, but soon taken away.
Most of these surviving plates were in shabby condition after years of service, but this one is in pristine unused condition.
This spectacular plate weighs 624g, and measures 10 3/8" (26.3cm) and it stands 1" (2.5cm) in height.
Made by Mayer China in Beaver Falls PA. and delivered by Maddock & Miller Inc. from New York city.
S.S. UNITED STATES – History Minute
Maiden Voyage 1952 … Out of Service 1969 … Laid up in Philadelphia USA … GRT: 53,330
The ship is the largest ocean liner constructed in the United States and the fastest ocean liner to cross the Atlantic in either direction,
retaining the Blue Riband for the highest average speed since her maiden voyage in 1952.
She could be converted into a troopship if required by the Navy in time of war.
The S.S. UNITED STATES maintained uninterrupted transatlantic passenger services until 1969 & never used as troopship.
