20" high x 13" wide x 11" deep
and weighing over 12lbs, this wall mount medicine
cabinet is made entirely of Titanic wreckwood.
This particular piece is one of just few of
the larger items made from salvaged wood and
has never been seen by the public.
It is made of quarter-cut "English"
white tiger oak, the type used exclusively in
Titanic's first class public areas such as the
fore and aft grand staircases. The wood it is
made of matches the same type of wood that was
used to make the large cabinet on display at
the Branson Titanic museum which was made from
sections of Titanic's wheelhouse door.
It was part of the wreckage picked up by crew
members of the cable ship Minia while on body
recovery operations. This cabinet, like many
wreckwood items, was made by William Parker
for Chief Officer James Adams. It was a gift
from Adams to his good friend Captain A.V. Earle
of New Brunswick, Canada. It stayed with his
family until the end of the 20th century, where
it was acquired by a well known expert Titanic
researcher and collector.
