Nice Circa 1920's Pierced Souvenir Napkin Ring with brass & enamel Crest....all in good condition. S.S. Empress of Scotland was the later name of the S.S. Kaiserin Auguste Victoria....she was was built by AG Vulcan Stettin in Stettin on the Baltic Sea in 1905-1906. The new ship was ordered by the expanding Hamburg America Line. At 24,000 plus tons she was the largest passenger liner in the world from 1905 to 1907 until the advent of Cunard's Lusitania. The ship regularly sailed between Hamburg and New York until the outbreak of war in Europe in 1914. At the end of hostilities, she transported American troops from Europe to the United States. For a brief time Cunard sailed the re-flagged ship between Liverpool and New York.The ship was refitted for Canadian Pacific Steamships and in 1921, she was renamed Empress of Scotland—the first of two CP ships to bear that name. When the new Empress of Britain came into service in 1931, Empress of Scotland was sold for scrap. The ship was gutted by a fire at the ship-breakers yard at Blyth where she broke in two and sank. Later the yard raised the pieces, which were then scrapped.
