Wood salvaged from the wheelhouse door
Description  

A thin 1″ long sliver of wood, originally part of the ship’s oak wheelhouse door, recovered from the Atlantic Ocean after the sinking of the Titanic. Salvaged from the debris by the Minia’s carpenter William Parker, he crafted a liquor cabinet from the door and other pieces of wreckage and presented it to the ship’s chief officer James Adams. Matted and framed with a portrait of the Titanic to an overall size of 10 x 12. Accompanied by a copy of a condition and information report for the liquor cabinet from Titanic—The Exhibition, stating the cabinet was made by Parker, a message post from noted Titanic expert Steve Santini, a previous owner of the cabinet, stating the wood comes from the wheelhouse door. In fine condition. Oak recovered from the wreckage is quite desirable as it was used for the more high-class areas of the ship. RR Auction COA.
