Description  

A 2.25 x 1.75 x 1 section of deck chair, cut from the seat of a damaged Titanic deck chair recovered by the cable ship Minia during the recovery of the bodies of Titanic victims. Section has three drilled holes in a vertical line and a flat head screw into one side. In fine condition, with light corrosion to screw. Accompanied by a two-page letter of authenticity from renowned Titanic author, curator, and deck chair authority Steve Santini which reads, in part “This section of wood was removed/cut from the seat of a damaged Titanic deck chair recovered by the cable ship Minia…I was contacted by an antique picker from Maine who had…purchased two very damaged deck chairs which oral history reported had been recovered from the floating surface wreckage of the Titanic…The remains of both these chairs match in every detail the known examples of Titanic deck chairs and I am very familiar with such chairs…We were unable to repair either of the damaged chairs…and 2 leg sections which were given as a gift to noted director James Cameron…Due to the overall condition/appearance of the chair from which it originated, I am of the firm belief that this is in fact from a deck chair recovered by the Minia while that vessel was on her mission recovering the bodies of floating Titanic passengers in the North Atlantic following the sinking of the RMS Titanic in 1912.” Also accompanied by a copy of a 1999 letter from James Cameron sending thanks for the section of deck chair.
