Titanic stories

Original sketch for a pair of walnut bedends

Original sketchThis design drawing for a pair of walnut bedends was made by Arthur Henry Durand.  He designed many of the woodwork details on board both Olympic and Titanic and was part of a large team of architects and designers who worked on the ships.

These bedends were made for a First Class Bedroom Suite.  The variety of design and the high quality of craftsmanship, particularly in First Class, made accommodation on board both comfortable and attractive.
