Description

Original floral-pattern floor tile manufactured for use in the first class smoking room onboard Titanic, measuring 12 x 12, nicely mounted and framed with an image of the smoking room to an overall size of 18 x 27.5. In fine condition. After workers finished laying the smoking room floor, the leftover tiles were used to tile the floors of various executive offices at the Harland & Wolff Shipyards, including the office of Titanic's builder Mr. Thomas Andrews. In the early 1970s when Harland and Wolff was renovating their office space, a few of the remaining Titanic tiles were taken up and released for sale.
