A passenger cabin chest of drawers with pull-down fronts.
From the White Star Line Ocean Liner S.S. Doric
which was broken up at Newport Docks in 1935,
inscribed to the back with cabin numbers.
"Doric was White Star's second and last turbine-propelled ship. The vessel was constructed by Harland and Wolff in Belfast and was launched in 1922. Her passenger capacity was 600 in cabin class plus 1,700 3rd. class, with a crew of 350. The ship's maiden voyage on 8 June 1923, was from Liverpool, England to Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
On 5 September 1935 Doric collided with the French vessel Formigny, of the Chargeurs Reunis line, off Cape Finisterre. Following this collision Doric had emergency repairs at Vigo, Spain. However once the Doric returned to England her damage was determined to be a constructive total loss and she was subsequently scrapped in November 1935 at Cashmores shipbreaker's yard in Newport, Monmouthshire.Various examples of solid oak wall paneling from the Doric today still decorate the St Julian's Arms on Caerleon Road in Newport.
