No thanks, The Hostess will pass

First of all, it has a misleading description: The ebay seller wants to confuse you, maybe. For $10 you can have an "authentic", "original," service plate from the first class section of the HMS Titanic, which is also "new". Huh.

Look, even if she had not taken most of her plate service with her to her watery grave, even if this were a legitimate pattern, or the real thing were not in very advanced White Star collections selling for fortunes, I have no interest in eating from her actual or reproduced china or drinking from the cup in Lee's saddle bag as he approached Appomattox. Some things should just be left alone.
