The RMS Olympic Passing Calshot
Image size: 13.5” by 27” with buff border
Nicknamed ‘The old reliable’ the named ship of the Olympic class liners is shown passing the seaplane base at Calshot at the end of the Solent, with Mauretania passing upstream behind her. In the foreground is the winner of the ‘Schneider Trophy’ competition of 1931, the Supermarine S6B, designed by William Mitchell, who would go on to produce the legendary “Spitfire’ of WW2.
Only 850 of these edition prints were produced, then signed and numbered by the artist and Mitchell's son, Gordon.
The original price was £80.00, so this is a guaranteed investment and an absolute bargain.
