Vintage Steamship Silver - British P & O - Ss Chusan - Egg Cup And 2 Knives For Sale
This sale is for a vintage silver plated egg cup made by the stellar Mappin & Webb silversmiths for the SS Chusan, which was a ship for the P&O (Peninsular and Oriental) line in the 1950's. P&O started service in 1822 with service to England, Spain and Portugal with some of its most famous ships sailing to India. It operated all over the world until 2006 with its controversial takeover by Dubai World.
This little egg cup is in great shape, having seen little or no commercial use. It is clearly side marked with "P&O CHUSAN." It measures approximately 3 1/4 inches in height. The markings on the bottom are as follows: MAPPIN & WEBB, LONDON SHEFFIELD, MAPPIN PLATE, W25085, with the letter "C" in a shield. There are also two petite knives from the P&O that have silver plated handles and stainless blades. The handles are elegant with a beautiful patina while the blades are stained and not shiny. They measure approximately 7 inches in length. The markings on the blades are as follows: Trustworthy, Mappin & Webb, Sheffield, Stainless, P&O.
