SUPERB VERY EARLY ANCHOR LINE AS USED ON BOARD SILVER SERVING DISH

DESCRIPTION -- An as used onboard silver serving dish from the Anchor Line shipping company which is a very early design and the size is 10" (25cm) wide.
[ONLY 1 AVAILABLE]

CONDITION -- Very Good

HISTORY -- The beginnings of Anchor Line Ltd can be seen in 1838 when two brothers, Nicol and Robert Handyside, established themselves in Glasgow, Scotland, as shipbrokers and merchants. They used chartered tonnage to trade with the Baltic and Russia. At that time Nicol was the Russian Consul in Glasgow. The business operated under the name N & R Handyside & Co, and in 1852 the name Anchor Line was used by them for the first time, but only as a by-line in an advertisement. Nevertheless, it was an indication of the intention of the Handysides to branch out into ship-owning on their own account. In the same year Thomas Henderson joined the business. He was one of four brothers from Pittenweem, Fife, Scotland, all master mariners.

Founded in 1910, the company ran a regular transatlantic service between Norway and the United States, and later to East Africa as well. Primarily due to competition from air travel, transatlantic passenger voyages were discontinued in 1971.

The Holland America Line is a cruise shipping company. It was initiated during 1873 as the Netherlands-America Steamship Company (Dutch: Nederlandsch-Amerikaansche Stoomvaart Maatschappij), a shipping and passenger line. Headquartered in Rotterdam and providing service to the Americas, it became known as Holland America Line. HAL is now headquartered in Seattle, Washington, U.S.

South African Lines Ltd Cape Town is an old shipping company that traded from the turn of the century. It later became the Safmarine shipping company when taken over several years ago.

CONDITION -- Very Good

HISTORY -- The Sphere (full title: The Sphere: An Illustrated Newspaper for the Home) was a British newspaper, published weekly from 27 January 1900 until the closure of the paper on 27 June 1964; the first issue came out at the height of the Boer War and was no doubt a product of that conflict and the public appetite for images. At the time, it was in direct competition with The Graphic and Illustrated London News, and evidence of this rivalry can be seen in the latter's publication shortly after of a new illustrated paper entitled The Spear in an attempt to confuse readers.

SOUVENIR MUG FROM THE SCANDINAVIAN SEAWAYS SERVICE COMPANY

DESCRIPTION -- Souvenir mug from the Scandinavian Seaways service company which is in a good condition and original from the service.
[ONLY 1 AVAILABLE]

CONDITION -- Excellent

HISTORY -- In 1988 DFDS adopted a new marketing name, Scandinavian Seaways, for their passenger division. As a result the Tor Scandinavia was painted in a new, attractive white/blue livery, but the change also meant disappearance of the name Tor Line from her hull. However, she and her sister did still retain their original names. In the same year the ship was moved to Danish International Shipregistry, which meant less operational costs for the company.
