Silver-plated four-piece condiment set with base and handle and spoons (one container and spoon missing), marked with Cunard Steamship logo and Elkington Plate stamps, ex-Aurania (1918). 651 grams total, 4" x 4" x 3". Interesting relic of a time gone by, this four-piece set with removable carry handle might have held sauces or relishes for dishes inside glass inserts now gone, its simple design somewhat tarnished and all but one holder and small spoon extant, rare provenance as from the Aurania, a World War I troop carrier torpedoed by German U-boats off Ireland on February 4, 1918, and subsequently sunk near the Island of Mull, Scotland, after being towed there, her silver room (which held this condiment set) not reached by salvors until 1980. From the S.S. Aurania (1918), with certificate.
