A la carte Teapot

17-Tea-pot-Titanic-600.jpgIf you want to know how Titanic’s wealthiest passengers dined while on board then check out this teapot from the à la carte restaurant of Titanic’s sister ship, Olympic. Titanic had First, Second and Third Class restaurants for passengers and each served meals that were included in the price of the passengers’ tickets. Despite the presence of a First Class restaurant, the wealthiest passengers could dine in a separate à la carte restaurant by paying extra. This ensured that they could enjoy a superb standard of dining using distinctive tableware like this piece.
