Arthur Price of England commerates the Titanic's centenary by creating the cutlery used in First Class
RMS Titanic & White Star Line
In 1912 the company was celebrating its 10th annivarsary with the commission to supply the world's most opulent liner RMS Titanic. The 268 metre-long Titanic was the height of luxury in its day.
The 100th annivarsay of the fateful maiden voyage was in 2012. To celerate this, Arthur Price have recreated the Panel Reed pattern that was used in the staterooms of First Class accommodation.
An image of the cutlery found at the wreck site can be seen here - Encyclopedia-Titanica. The cutlery used in the dining rooms was silver-plated and a variety of patterns were supplied by different companies. When it sank, the Titanic carried over 44,000 pieces of cutlery!
Over the years, interest in the Titanic story has not waned. There remains an eternal fascination around the tragic voyage. This was partly fuelled by the long-awaited discovery of the ship's wreck on 1st September 1985 and subsequent expeditions to recover artifacts from 2.5 miles below the Atlantic Ocean.
The Panel Reed cutlery was recovered from one of the Titanic's copper dishwashers, near the stern section of the wreck in 1994.
Each knife features the famous White Star Line logo on its blade, just as they were originally.
