Green Baize


This dark green felt-like baize fabric measures 4 1/2" x 7" and is just a small representation of a very large piece in the collection. It is purported to have been on the Titanic, taken as a souvenir by a merchant seaman before the maiden voyage while in Belfast, Ireland.

Based on evidence, there were many places this fabric may have been used. Some possibilities include the first-class smoking room, the captain's, doctor's or other officials desktop or from one of the few sets of double swinging corridor doors. It was more than likely a leftover or soon-to-be-used piece of a gaming or card table as depicted in the 1997 movie Titanic or in an artist's rendition below.
