It's a beautiful model ocean liner that will be a conversation piece for any room or office. Size: 41" overall length x 14.5" height x 5.5 width. SS Normandie was an ocean liner built in Saint-Nazaire, France for the French Line Compagnie Générale Transatlantique. Her novel design and lavish interiors led many to consider her the greatest of ocean liners. Despite this, she was not a commercial success and relied partly on government subsidy to operate.During service as the flagship of the CGT, she made 139 transatlantic crossings westbound from her home port of Le Havre to New York and one fewer return. Normandie held the Blue Riband for the fastest transatlantic crossing at several points during her service career, during which the RMS Queen Mary was her chief rival. During World War II, Normandie was seized by the United States authorities at New York and renamed USS Lafayette. Although salvaged at great expense, restoration was deemed too costly and she was scrapped in October 1946.
