Outstanding Frame Print of the Cunard Line Ocean Liner, "RMS Mauritania" 28-3/4" x 24" by the Artist, "K.D. Shoesmith"
Recently found in the Syracuse-Rochester, NY area is this older framed Print of the Cunard Line 1906 Ship, "RMS Mauritania".
The First "RMS Mauritania" was launched in September, 1906 & completed in November, 1907 by the Cunard Line in Northumberland, United Kingdom and retired from service in 1934.
RMS Mauretania was an ocean liner designed by Leonard Peskett and built by Swan, Hunter & Wigham Richardson for the British Cunard Line, and launched on the afternoon of 20 September 1906. She was the world's largest ship until the completion of RMS Olympic in 1911 as well as the fastest until Bremen's maiden voyage in 1929. Mauretania became a favourite among her passengers. After capturing the Eastbound Blue Riband on her maiden return voyage in December 1907, she claimed the Westbound Blue Riband for the fastest transatlantic crossing during her 1909 season. Mauretania would hold both speed records for twenty years.
The Print was probaly framed at the "The Great Frame Up" Shop in Rochester, NY...that has operated for 35+ years.
The Print, itself, displays the 1906 Cunard Line Ship, "RMS Mauritania".and has been double matted, and signed in the lower right hand corner; "K.D. Shoesmith". Based on the discoloration of the matting as well as the discoloration on the backside, it appears that the Print was framed some 20--30 years ago.....whereas the older frame gives its a 1930-40's look. The Print appears to be circa 1950---1970's.
The Framed Print of the 1906 RMS Mauretania, measures 28-3/4" x 24". On looking at every aspect of the Print........the colors are fairly crisp and I can find no flaws in the Print itself.
