Bent Ply Ottomans
From RMS IVERNIA/FRANCONIA 

Oak Or Mahogany Veneer

Various Sizes and Prices

These enduring bent ply ottomans are products of the John Brown and Company shipyard and date from the shipʼs construction in 1955. Originally, they were covered in patterned cloth and then in the FRANCONIA incarnation from 1963 until 1971, they were redone in off-white leather. During the shipʼs FEDOR SHALYAPIN years, most were recovered in whatever was available, from cheap naugahyde to shag carpeting and ornate upholstery. Some were more battered than others but I have done my best to undo the latter day layers of paint and cheap varnish. Please see individual ottomans for pricing, size and condition details.
