What an incredible story Alexa and a treasure that chair is! Thanks for sharing!


My goodness, that is indeed a great story behind the family chair. I have to show my husband this picture later tonight - years ago he made his own lathe :-)

That's the most perfect Titanic story I have heard this week (and as you can imagine, there have been a few flying around). It's a beautiful piece too, thank you for letting us take a peep.

What an amazing story! Aren't you lucky to have learned it, that it wasn't lost forever.


What a wonderful story to go with that amazing chair ...I could see a LO or canvas using a photo of the chair and of the joiner, if there is one, and the amazing tale. What a work of art that could be to go with the chair for posterity.


What a great story about the chair and how it came to be. A real treasure for sure. Love the bookmark too! Happy #104-2nd Anniversary of WOYWW Thanks for sharing. Vickie #55

The chair is so quirky and lovely, and what a wonderful story. A real family heirloom!

What a fascinating story and a beautiful chair!


That is absolutely incredible and eerie and cool! Owning something with that kind of story - really deserves a wonderful layout to preserve it.

It's staggering isnt it - how many lives were touched by the tragedy of the Titanic' loss. The chair is a beauty. I often tell my Aunt that the best gift my daughter was ever given is the little oak stool she gave her...for sitting at, on, standing on and now in her teens, it's a lamp stand. Perfect thing, furniture.


Such a lovely story, and what a treasured keepsake. You should get it properly valued hun - it's one of those things that "make" the Antiques Roadshow just for the story behind it. How wonderful... Happy WOYWW 104!
