237.    **1953 TITANIC FILM LIFEBOAT PROP: This lot consists of a 4ft. screen-used lifeboat prop from the iconic 1953 film Titanic starring Clifton Webb and Barbara Stanwyck. Produced by 20th Century Fox, some cite this film as the most historically accurate until Fox's more recent re-do of the film with James Cameron at the 'helm'. The film centres around a wealthy man (Webb) who purchases a steerage ticket aboard the doomed liner, and his wife (Stanwyck) who is attempting to 'escape' from him with their two children.
Some of the other prop lifeboats used in the film were 18inch miniatures with the same figures but on a smaller scale. This model is 4ft. and contains numerous removable rubber figures in the boat representing survivors. So detailed were the prop makers that the figures are actually adorned with life jackets made of a canvas-like material with at least one of the figures still wearing its crew hat!
This model came from a boat shop in San Diego, California after it closed, having sold at a 20th Century Fox auction in the 1970s. It matches the life-size screen used "hero" lifeboat No 6 which had been displayed at Movie World in Buena Park, California.
This lifeboat is easily recognisable in the film as one of the boats with a motor (Titanic had none such) and oars. At 4ft. in length it can easily be the centrepiece of a Titanic or film collection. It is a true museum piece.
Note: Prop's interior is original to the film while the outside has been repainted. Motor and oars no longer present. Special shipping arrangements will apply due to size. £1500-2500
238.    WILLIAM MACQUITTY (1905-2004) WITNESSED THE CONSTRUCTION AND LAUNCH OF R.M.S TITANIC AS A BOY GROWING UP IN BELFAST.
Over fifty years later, he produced his best-known film "A Night to Remember", based on Walter Lord's book of the same name. Widely praised for its authenticity, the film benefited from MacQuitty's persuasive charm in getting first hand advice from the survivors of the disaster and shipyard workers, who had built R.M.S TITANIC. The following Items were owned/acquired by William MacQuitty during the production, research and release of the film
"A Night to Remember".
The sale of these items will benefit The MacQuitty Charitable Foundation in Northern Ireland.

WILLIAM MACQUITTY COLLECTION: White metal purse and coin given to Joe Mulholland, a fireman onboard the Titanic on her delivery trip from Belfast to Southampton.

The purse and coin were given to William MacQuitty by Mr. Mulholland in January 1957, said to have been recovered from a Titanic lifeboat by John 'Pancake' Baker, who however disembarked in Southampton. A letter accompanies the lot.
The story is featured in the book "Titanic memories - The making of a Night to Remember" along with the full details of how it was obtained. It is to be noted that the authenticity in relation to this object ever being on the Titanic cannot be established other than the fact it was given by a crew-member (Mulholland).

Thursday

"My dearest cousin Lizzie, I came here to meet Miss Sloan - the little Stewardess who was on Tommie's ship and see her off to Belfast and I have sent a letter to poor wee Nellie (wife of Thomas Andrews Jr) to tell her how Miss Sloan can talk of no one but Tommie. She says he was just noble, just as he always was grand fellow, so un-selfish and so calm and so brave though he knew the hopelessness of all from the first.
She says he was graver than usual when she met him close to the doctor's cabin going up to the dining on the Friday evening.
He was in evening dress but stopped to speak to her and seemed not to want to go on tho' the doctor was calling him to come on or he'd be late.
He seemed to want to talk of home and told her his father had been ill 'and my wife hasn't been too well.
He seemed to be thinking of them so tenderly ……he said you'd had so much an anxious winter and the stewardess said to give him cheery ideas, some of Titanic - 'she was just a perfect ship'. She said you could see where his heart was every minute".

Previously unpublished it gave his wife a survivor's account of the last hours of her husband, sold with its original envelope.
The second part of the archive is a letter written by stewardess Mary Sloan to Thomas's father, dated 5th June 1912. It's written from the Olympic and thanks him for the book he sent and also asks him to pass on her best wishes to Mrs Andrews.
NB: Mary Sloan was the only woman on the ship from Belfast. These letters are important. As well as being previously unpublished, they show Mary's concern for Thomas Andrews's parents. Miss Sloan was interviewed by several publications in Northern Ireland on her return home and spoke very highly of Thomas Andrews. In the years after the sinking to her death she remained silent about the Titanic, being buried in East Belfast in 1949. This pair of letters is exceptionally rare and represent a previously unpublished account written only five weeks after the sinking.

264.    R.M.S. TITANIC: An exceptional handwritten postcard postmarked 11pm 9th April 1912 sent by Second-Class passenger Jacob Christian Milling (1863-1912). Milling was one of 13 Danes on aboard the Titanic on the ship's fateful maiden voyage across the Atlantic. He was employed at "Sydfyenske Jernbaner" (Southern Fyn Railways) and highly respected for his knowledge and his ability to construct locomotive parts. In 1912, he was granted leave for a two-month paid study tour in the United States.

Milling wrote the postcard to his wife, Augusta, and it was sent just prior to Milling's departure, where he was waiting with excitement in his hotel room at the South Western Hotel in Southampton with a view of the mighty ship from his window. The postcard reads:

"Dear Augusta! This is the last thing you will hear from me from this side of the Atlantic. I may send a wireless if it is not too expensive. I am staying at Banen's Hotel, it's not cheap but comfortable. From my window, I can see the ship in the dock. How are the old folks? Send them and the children my greetings. Many greetings to all of you. From Jacob."

A few days later (14th April) he sent the "Wireless" telegram mentioned in the postcard from the ship. He stated in a pre-arranged code (ABANAPAS) that everything was fine: "All is well, calm weather, the ship is fine, I am enjoying myself, good travel companions, a wonderful trip". The telegram reached Augusta at the couple's address in Odense only a few hours after Milling had perished in the ice-cold Atlantic Ocean. Milling was found by the CS Mackay-Bennett, body #271 and taken to Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, from where his remains were sent home via Boston on board the C.F. Tietgen on 16th May 1912. Jacob Milling was buried at the Assistens Cemetery in the centre of Copenhagen on 3rd June 1912. A superb piece on numerous levels. £5000-8000

266.    R.M.S. TITANIC: First-Class passenger Helen Churchill Candee, one of the most powerful & emotive three-dimensional objects from the Titanic ever offered for auction. This silver brandy flask is engraved with the Churchill family arms bearing the legend "Faithful but Unfortunate". A cherished family heirloom, it travelled onboard the Titanic with Mrs Churchill Candee, a member of the famous coterie, onboard the liner.
As the ship was sinking Mrs Churchill Candee believed that her friend Edward Kent - a fellow First-Class passenger - was more likely to survive than she. She gave the flask to him with the words. "You stand a better chance of living than I".
Mr Kent's body was later recovered by the crew of the C.S Mackay-Bennett and among the items sent back to his wife was this flask. Helen survived the sinking & later received a package from Mr Kent's grieving sister Charlotte on mourning stationery containing the words
"..the flask is badly out of shape", alongside an explanation of why she was returning the flask to its owner.
Mrs Churchill Candee was a prolific authoress and early pioneer for women's rights. Her books included "How Women May Make a Living" and she was returning to the United States as her son had been injured in an air-crash. Her story was not only recounted in a Night to Remember but is believed by some to have been one of the inspirations for the lead character "Rose" in James Cameron's blockbuster "Titanic". The flask itself bears the scars inflicted by Titanic's death throes.
It was sold by Henry Aldridge & Son in September 2005 via direct descent. It is the first time it has been offered since.
The flask and letter have been on show since January 2019 at the world's largest Titanic museum located in the United States and have been viewed by several hundred thousand people in that time.
A truly exceptional museum piece.
Also a photograph with pencil notation on reverse of Helen Churchill Candee. 4ins. x 2ins. (3).
£50000-80000
267.    R.M.S. TITANIC - RARE CORRESPONDENCE CONFIRMING THE WRONG VICTIM WAS IN THE COFFIN:
Brothers Leonard, Lewis and Stanley Hickman of Fritham, Hampshire, England were travelling to Eden, Manitoba, Canada to where Leonard had already emigrated in 1908 and worked as a farmhand for a wealthy farmer, Harold Honeyman. They boarded Titanic in Southampton as Second-Class passengers. All three brothers were lost in the sinking. For some time following the disaster, it was believed that only Leonard's body had been recovered, by the Mackay-Bennett, body No. 256.

This lot consists of two spectacular handwritten letters. The first is dated May 11-12, 1912 from Jim Smith, of Eden, Manitoba, Canada to Albert, another Hickman brother who planned to emigrate to Canada later. The letter consists of eight pages, each measuring about 8ins. x 10½ins. and relates, virtually in its entirety, to the discovery by Leonard's boss, H.R. Honeyman, who attended "Leonard's" funeral, that the body he viewed in the coffin was not Leonard's but, apparently, Leonard's brother Lewis whose own name had not appeared on the list of recovered bodies. The author states that Honeyman did want him to view the body as he had "thought it would be best for me to remember Leon as we last seen him, the Bright Happy Boy that left Eden in December". The letter reflects on how Honeyman decided not to reveal his discovery at the funeral in light of the effect it would have at such a time. Thus, the funeral proceeded as if Leonard's body was in the coffin.

The letter explains that it was the moustache that helped give the misidentification away. Lewis had one. Leonard did not. It also discusses Honeyman's communications with White Star Line. The detail of this letter over eight pages concerning the single topic of the body's misidentification is superb. Macabre at times, it is the most detailed account of a Titanic victim's body identification we have seen.

The second letter, addressed to Albert T. Hickman, is from H.R. Honeyman himself and consists of three handwritten pages dated May 20th, 1912, headed Eden, Manitoba, Canada, each page measuring about 7¾ins. x 9¾ins. and is accompanied by its original mailing envelope with stamp. The handwriting is impeccable, almost calligraphic.
Honeyman implies that the body, which he originally thought was his employee, Leonard, had been forwarded from Halifax to the care of a local undertaker. The entire letter is devoted to the misidentification of the body, the burial and Lewis's personal effects. It is quite detailed.

These letters represent what is possibly the most detailed account of a Titanic victim's identification and burial, with a unique insight into a misidentification of a body recovered from Titanic. Had the funeral not involved an open casket and had Honeyman not recognized that the body was not that of his employee, Leonard, history may have continued to attribute body No. 256 to Leonard. While the body effects which were subsequently shipped to England suggested they belonged to Lewis rather than Leonard, the identity would not have been certain without viewing the body. Although the provincial coroner in Halifax photographed at least some of the bodies, no photographic record of body No. 256 is known to exist and it is unclear whether photos were taken of bodies that were transferred to other destinations such as Lewis's. These letters constitute the only known confirmation of the misidentification that occurred, from the one who discovered it! £3000-5000
