This is a most interesting photographic collage of a sailor who served aboard the S. M. S. Kaiserin. The Kaiserin was a part of the four-ship “Kaiser” Battleship Class. She was commissioned in 1913 and participated in many naval actions during WW I. Most important, she participated in the Battle of Jutland, which took place on 31 May 1916.
The collage’s center shows a sailor in his dress tunic. It is quite clear that he belonged to the S. M. S. Kaiserin’s crew. Surrounding the ship are other bits and pieces that include Kaiser Wilhelm II and his younger brother, Prinz Heinrich. Both men are in an admiral’s gala (dress) uniform. Below the sailor we see a line of battleships at speed.
The collage’s frame is a real attention-getter. It measures 4 1/4″ x 6 ½.” It sports a classy shade of brown, and its four, beautiful, rounded corners simply take one’s eyes hostage! The frame’s interior measurements are 3 7/8″ x 5 5/8.” Its reverse has two places from which it could be hung from a wall. It also has an easel that allows the frame to be set up on a flat surface. You will truly enjoy this one!
