This collectible Titanic model was painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by skilled craftsmen using a wealth of detail. The RMS (Royal Mail Ship) Titanic, the largest and most luxurious ship afloat, it had a double-bottomed hull divided into 16 watertight compartments. The Titanic struck an iceberg on the night of April 14, at 11:40 PM. Titanic sank, with great loss of life, at 2:20 AM, on April 15, 1912. The United States Senate investigation reported that 1,517 people perished in the accident, while the British investigation has the number at 1,490. Regardless, the disaster ranks as one of the worst peacetime maritime disasters in history, and is by far the best known. It carried some of the richest, most powerful industrialists, multi-millionaire entrepreneurs of her day.
Among the survivors was nine week old Millvina Dean, her mother and brother; they would survive on Lifeboat 10. The three surviving members of the Dean family went on to live long healthy lives; Dean's mother passed away at age 96, her brother passed at age 80, and Millvina, who was last living survivor of the Titanic, passed away on May 31, 2009 at the age of 97. This model is personally signed by Millvina.
