Irish Emigration 'Coffin Ship', Belfast to New York, 1848.
The Great Famine was two years old at this stage and many were desperate to leave Ireland and start a new life in America. These ships became known as 'Coffin Ships' as conditions were extremely poor. Many people died from starvation & disease. Poignant rare piece to honour the trip many of our ancestors took.
We are delighted to be able to present these fascinating rarities of old Ireland for you to own.
We look forward to helping you create your own collection that can be treasured and admired by your family for many generations to come!
