* Soup Tureen

12-Soup-Tureen-Titanic600.jpgSoup tureens of exceptional quality like this would normally be found in the First Class dining room.

This particular tureen was actually used by Titanic’s engineers in their dining room as the letters ‘EM’ for Engineers Mess are stamped on the bottom. This ensured that the tureen was returned to the right place after dishwashing.

The name ‘Titanic’ doesn’t appear on any china or silver like this. This meant it was stock silverware that could be transferred from the central warehouse to other ships in case of breakage or loss. Artefact on loan from RMS Titanic, Inc. @ 2011
