VERY RARE HARLAND & WOLFF BUILDER'S PLATE
Guaranteed Authentic
 
 
Presented is a very rare Harland & Wolff builder's plate, only the second one we have had to offer. This is not a plate that would have been used on a ship, but rather it is from one of the engines that Harland & Wolff built for marine use. A picture of one of their engine manuals is below.
 
 
PROVENANCE: We guarantee this plate to be an original and not a recast. The plate appears to have not been mounted, but likely was carried on a ship as a spare as is common practice. The ship then ended up in a breaker's yard from where our agent obtained it. The front of the plate has been painted turquoise and the backside of the plate is painted grey, and under the grey paint is polished bronze.
 
 
OVAL SIZE: 20 3/4" L x 11" W x 1/2" D        WEIGHT: 17 Lbs

This great casting will make a fine wall hanging for your office, boardroom or den. Buy now with confidence!
 
BRIEF HISTORY OF HARLAND & WOLFF: The company was formed in 1861 by Edward James Harland (1831-1895) and Hamburg-born Gustav Wilhelm Wolff (1834-1913, in the UK from age 14). Harland had bought the small shipyard on Queen's Island, in which he was employed as general manager in 1858. The shipyard has built many types of ships continuously since then, the most famous being the RMS TITANIC. Their main business today is ship repair and conversion work, ship design and bridge building. Harland and Wolff also owns the world's largest dry-dock, which is in Belfast.

When Harland died in 1894, William Pirrie became the chairman of the company until his death in 1924. It was during this period that the company built the RMS TITANIC and her sister-ships RMS OLYMPIC and HMHS BRITANNIC between 1909 and 1914. These were three of over 70 ships constructed for the White Star Line.

The World Wars; During both wars Harland & Wolff built various warships including the WW I Light Cruiser HMS GLORIOUS.

The East Yard which they opened in 1918 was busy during WW II, building 6 aircraft carriers, 2 cruisers and 131 other naval ships; and repairing over 22,000 vessels. It also manufactured tanks and artillery components. It was during this period that the company's workforce peaked at around 35,000 people.

Post war period and decline: With the rise of the jet powered airliner in the late 1950's, the demand for passenger ships declined; and this coupled with competition from Japan led to difficulties for the British shipbuilding industry. The last cruise liner that the company built was the SS CANBERRA in 1960.

The 1960's saw the English shipbuilding industry in decline, and the British government advanced monies to keep it afloat, but was unsuccessful in their efforts which lead to a take over of the company in 1975.

The company was bought from the British government in 1989 in a management/employee buy-out in partnership with the Norwegian shipping magnate Fred Olsen; leading to a new company called Harland and Wolff Holdings Plc. By this time, the number of people employed by the company had fallen to around 3000.

For the next few years, Harland and Wolff specialized in building standard Suezmax tankers, and has continued to concentrate on vessels for the offshore oil and gas industry. It has made some forays outside of this market---for example unsuccessfully bidding against Chantiers de L'Atlantique for the construction of Cunard's new QUEEN MARY 2, and recently completing two roll-on roll-off ships.

More recently, faced with competitive pressures (especially as regards shipbuilding), Harland and Wolff have sought to shift and broaden their portfolio, focus less on shipbuilding and more on design and structural engineering, as well as ship repair, offshore construction projects and competing for other projects to do with metal engineering and construction.

Harland and Wolff's last ship to date was the MV Anvil Point, a Ro-Ro freighter built for use by the Royal Fleet Auxiliary. The ship was launched in 2003.
