WOOD AND CANE CHAIR FROM TITANIC
WOOD AND CANE CHAIR FROM TITANIC

This chair was retrieved from the Montmagny one of the Canadian vessels chartered by the White Star Line to retrieve bodies. Picking up flotsam, especially items that were practical was a time honored tradition amongst coastal dwellers were often were quite poor and shipwrecks were opportunities. Not as rugged or heavy as a deck chair that had to withstand the elements this most likely came from one of Titanics elegant suites that had their own private promenade deck that was protected from the weather.
