‘Titanic’ costumes to go on display
London: Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio’s costumes, which they wore in the Oscar winning 1997 movie ‘Titanic’, is all set to be displayed as part of an exhibition about the ill-fated ship.
The exhibition is being organised by bone china company Royal Crown Derby, which supplied items to the Titanic’s first-class restaurant, reports the Telegraph.
It will also feature a recreation of the Titanic’s first-class a la carte restaurant, with a table laid as it would have been on its 1912 voyage.
The showcase, in Derby, will open on February 26 - almost 100 years to the day that the Titanic’s owner, White Star Line, placed an order with Royal Crown Derby.
The order included 600 dinner plates, 150 soup bowls, 150
breakfast plates, 100 salad plates, 150 breakfast cups and saucers, and 100 teacups and saucers.
Royal Crown Derby still has the 1911 pattern book with the design of the crockery, which was to be exclusive for the Titanic and was no longer to be manufactured for general sale.
Apart from one plate, currently at Southampton Museum, none of the original crockery survived the 1912 disaster. But Royal Crown Derby has since put the range back into full production for the first time since 1911.
As well as the Winslet and DiCaprio costumes, the exhibition will feature memorabilia from the Titanic and from her sister ship, The Olympic.
