R.M.S. LUSITANIA: An extremely rare wicker/rattan carver chair from the Lusitania's verandah café. The chair itself was recovered shortly after the Lusitania sank on 7th May 1915. The vendor's grandfather, a school teacher on Sherkin Island, recovered the chair when it was washed ashore after the disaster. A signed letter of provenance accompanies this exceptional relic alongside a copy of The Cork Examiner from 22nd June 1915 which documents the vendor's grandfather recovering the body of a victim from the Falaba which was sunk by a German U-Boat.
