Titanic’s Sister Britannic Panels Auction
The ornate carved wood panelling from the HMHS Britannic, the last and largest of the three Olympic Class ocean liners and sister ship of the infamous RMS Titanic, will be put up for public auction an auspicious 100 years after their 1919 auction by the Harland & Wolff Shipyard.
Rediscovered after their use in a Dublin city-centre cinema until 1972, both the first-class lounge and the second-class library panels are expected to achieve sums in excess of €200,000 each, and this rare discovery presents a chance to be part of the legacy of the White Star Line.
These panels can be viewed at the auction site:
The Heritage Golf Resort Complex, Killenard, Portarlington, Co Laois.
Open to public viewing from Friday 25th – 30th April from 10.30am – 6pm.
By appointment, we can arrange private viewings of the remaining oak first-class lounge panelling in Dublin.
There will also be other items of marine and nautical interest as well as spectacular garden furniture and sculpture, with over 500 pieces overall.
The auction will take place on May 1st and 2nd at 11am.
The panels will be auctioned on May 1st.
