My Titanic Candy Dish

I wish I could remember, but someone spoke about Titanic memorabilia, so I thought about my trip to the exhibit. I went several years ago, but I still remember the awe of seeing things from so long ago, years in the ocean, and still looking pretty good. When you enter you are given a passenger name and at the end you see if you survived the sinking. Surprisingly to me, I DID!
I purchased this candy dish. It is a replica of one of the patterns of dishes from the ship.
Above picture is looking into dish.
This is the stamp on the bottom.
I really enjoy looking at this from time to time and remembering the Titanic exhibit.

How neat! It was probably Nikki at Scarlett Rose Garden who talked about the Titanic.

I'm so glad you survived the Titanic! :) The movie hasn't been on cable for the longest time. I wish they'd bring it back again.

That is such a neat piece to have. I've never seen it before.
I wish I had gotten a piece like that from the exhibit when I was there. Maybe next time.

That's a pretty piece, C. We went to that exhibit when it came to us too. Our Julie had always been facinated with the Titanic so went with her. I didn't know you had that little candy dish - very nice post!
XOXO Kathy
