SILVER PRESENTATION GOBLET
MAIDEN VOYAGE OF THE COLLINS LINE SIDEWHEEL STEAMER "ATLANTIC"
New York & Liverpool United States' Mail Steamship Company - American, Dated 1850
 
by BALL, TOMPKINS & BLACK, NEW YORK

 

                                                                                             
Presented is an important silver goblet that was awarded in recognition of the sidewheel steamship's crossing from New York to Liverpool, England. It is engraved to "L.S. BARTHOLOMEW, 1st. Assistant Eng. of the Steam Ship Atlantic from the President & Directors of the U.S. Mail line of Steamers between New York & Liverpool, As a token of their appreciation of his services on board the Atlantic at sea, May 1850," 
 
HISTORIC IMPORTANCE: The "Atlantic" made her first voyage from New York on April 27, 1850. In July of that year, "Atlantic" broke the trans-Atlantic record by crossing to Liverpool in 10 days, 5 hours, and in September, she transported the Swedish singer Jenny Lind to New York for her American concert tour.
 
The design is of a foliate cartouche with scrolling flowers, die-cast floral rims, and it is marked inside the tubular base "B.T. & B/N" over "New YORK" over "E"
 
SPECIFICATIONS:
 
Diameter of mouth 4 1/4"        Diameter of base 3 1/8"
Height 8 inches                       Weight 9 oz.
 
BRIEF HISTORY: The New York & Liverpool United States' Mail Steamship Company, commonly known as the Collins Line, was founded in New York in 1818 by Israel Collins. His son Edward joined him in 1824, and followed was a period of rapid growth using sailing ships. After Israel's death in 1831, Edward took over management of a New York-New Orleans packet line. He made a great success of this venture as well other accomplishments.
 
In 1849 the US Postmaster General Office invited companies to submit bids for a 10-year state-subsidized mail service contract between New York and Liverpool, in direct competition with Cunard who had opened a similar service in 1848. Collins' plan to operate a weekly service on the route with five ships was approved and the contract was awarded to his New York & Liverpool United States' Mail Steamship Company, commonly known as Collins Line.
 
Due to the financial constraints the service was scaled down to a bi-weekly operation using four ships. Collins hired the young George Steers, who later designed the famous yacht America, to design his new ships. Named SS Atlantic, SS Arctic, SS Baltic and SS Pacific.
 
The new ships were superior to those of Cunard Line in many ways. At nearly 3000 tons, they were twice as large as Cunard's largest ships, at maximum speed of 12 knots faster, and included many new innovations such as steam-heating, running water and a ventilation system in all accommodations.
 
The Atlantic was the first ship in service, beginning her maiden voyage on 27 April 1850. With the crossing from New York to Liverpool taking 10 days and 16 hours, the ship clipped 12 hours off the existing Cunard record. Atlantic and her sister ships consistently bettered the crossing times of the Cunard ships, and the Baltic became the first mail ship to cross in less than ten days. However, due to their high speeds the Collins steamers were also extremely uneconomic, with fuel consumption at 87 tons of coal per day (compared to mere 37 tons of Cunard ships). Additionally the ships required constant expensive repairs due to structural damage caused to their wooden hulls by their excessively powerful engines.
 
The company never fully recovered from the losses of the ARCTIC in 1854 and PACIFIC in 1856. Disruptions to services due to breakdowns and protracted repairs, late delivery of the new ship ADRIATIC, etc caused the failure of the line and operations were suspended in Feb.1858. Their remaining ships were sold to the principal creditors at a sheriff's sale.
