Rare Titanic Artifact On Display In Pigeon Forge (WVLT 8, 4 Feb 2019)
A newly surfaced personal artifact of a Titanic survivor is on display at the Titanic Museum Attraction in Pigeon Forge before it goes to auction. Titanic survivor Helen Candee had two personal items on board the famed ship when it sank. She met another passenger and, believing he would survive before she would, she gave them to him. His body was recovered later, and her items were returned to her family.
“We are thrilled to host this, first of its kind, auction preview collaboration with Henry Aldridge & Son Auction House in England,” says Kellogg-Joslyn with the museum. “That means, for a brief and special period, our guests will be given an up-close look at a rare, Titanic artifact before it is ‘going, going, gone,’ possibly never to be seen again in a public setting.”
