A very unusual and unique artifact from the legendary Titanic has entered the auction. The almost perfectly preserved menu shows the evening’s offering on April 11, 1912. Experts expect it to fetch an enormous sum at auction.
The first-class menu from the Titanic is going up for auction. According to CNN, it will go on sale on Saturday, and experts estimate that its price is extremely high. Allegedly, it is supposed to yield around two million crowns.
According to the BBC, the menu was slightly damaged by water. The paper is yellowish and the writing is faded. Even so, you can read what the passengers on the ocean liner had for dinner. The menu from April 11, 1912 offered oysters, beef tenderloin or pudding.
According to experts, this is a truly unique possibility. The menu is supposed to be the only one of its kind that managed to be preserved from a sunken ocean liner. However, it will not be the only auction item at Saturday’s auction.
A blanket, which one of the survivors was supposed to keep warm in the lifeboat, will also go to the auction. A pocket watch that should have belonged to a second class passenger will also be auctioned. The auction is scheduled to take place on November 11 in England.
The ocean liner Titanic set out on her maiden and final voyage on April 10, 1912 under the command of Captain Edward J. Smith. She sank to the bottom of the sea just a few days later, on April 14. Over two thousand people were traveling on board at the time.
