FURNISHINGS FOR THE TITANIC

An original TLS from H.P.Mutters & Zoon, Koninkl. Nederl. Meubelenfabrik of Gravenhage [The Hague], 30 September 1911, to Messrs, Harland & Wolff of Belfast, regarding the S.S. Titanic and a ‘new order for the alteration of the Staterooms on B. deck on the above vessel and the Wickerworks in hand’,
and asking for payment to the National Bank of Scotland for credit to a Rotterdam account, ‘after delivery and satisfaction’. With ‘Answered’ stamp and various manuscript annotations.

An intriguing document. One might perhaps wonder why H&W were unable to source their wickerwork locally. (1)
