The famous Titanic violin… This is the violin which belonged to the Titanic band member, Wallace Hartley. It was auctioned at Henry Aldridge and Sons auction house, Devizes, Wiltshire for £900000 on Saturday. I was present at the auction and we almost thought that the violin was going to go for a million. No news as yet as to who bought it.
Also pictured is part of a window surround from one of the first class suites on the Olympic.
Plate and saucer set made for use on the Titanic; these were removed from the ship shortly before her voyage. Others similar to these would have been used on the ship.
HISTORY MEME - WORLD VERSION ♛ [05/08] objects : Wallace H. Hartley’s violin
101 years after Titanic’s sinking, violin’s conductor of the ship had been found and authenticated. It belung to Wallace Hartley, the Titanic’s conductor. The same man who won fame by playing until the ship sunk in the depth of Atlantic. His corpse stayed 10 days in the ocean before being retrieved. The violin had been found in a suitcase fastened to him. His mother knew that he would have died gripping it. It was a present from his fiancée with a little silver plaque :”To Wallace, for our engagement. Maria”. Wallace Hartley is one of the most important well-known figure because of his incredible courage. And his violin is the most famous and important object of this tragedy.
