Bobso,
    I believe all the guides of this type were replaced in the various overhauls over the years.  Given the photos of the recent ship's guides I've seen on this website from various members, I don't think there are any left thus the old version's appearance on ebay.

"Missing" item on ebay

http://cgi.ebay.com/Cunard-QE2-board-service-clock-not-souvenir-/140581908622?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item20bb55b08e#ht_500wt_1156


The clock from "D" stairway.  I was onboard when it went "missing", I think it was QE2's final winter crossing in January 2008.
It caused quite a buzz throughout the ship.  Word spread quickly, regular passengers and crew were all expressing a deep sorrow that the ship was already being pilfered.  The crew confirmed that the clock was not removed for maintenance reasons or for any other legitimate reason.

And now here it is, on Ebay.

To reply to Stowaway 2K---if this person is the same one who "pilfered" the clock from the QE2--what chance is there that he could be in real trouble now that he is trying to sell it?

I can't comment on whether or not he is...  but as the clock is the property of Cunard, it is they who would have to take action.
The worst that would happen, I think, is that Ebay would pull the auction.

One of our table hosts on the farewell crossings admitted he had a damaged clock .
In fact there is a subject on QE2 clocks....

Quote
  On the Final Atlantic  crossing during dinner it came up in conversation about the ships clocks. Our host that night admitted he actually had  a broken one in his ownership . All my charm and wit was wasted trying to find out how one might be obtained legally.

 Sadly it way annoying to see some of clocks had markings to indicate attempts to remove them had failed, the host did mention that all the spares had been used up and they are actually wired in which makes removing then dangerous. Not to mention in recent months the clocks had been firmly screwed onto the walls.

Personally l found the idea to remove actual fittings from QE2 was dispicable. Its one thing to take a side plate, but to remove the fixings is to remove part of her soul.

QE2 had been waiting alongside in Dubai for nearly 12 years.  Please restore her Lifeboats and Tenders to where they truly belong - she looks naked without them - please spare her this ignominy.

This is a link to an interesting find --seems quite a reasonable price--exept the time of the end of the auction---

To return to the QE2 clock that is for sale on E-Bay--if you scroll through the pictures on the auction page you will see that the clock has indeed had its works replaced by a modern mechanism complete with battery. I wonder if E-Bay will pull this item from their auction--i suppose only "Time will Tell".!!! :-[

It'll only be pulled if somebody reports it to them as stolen goods; e-Bay do not search their listings for such things - they rely on people alerting them.  Even then it doesn't always happen quickly, or even at all.

In this instance if Cunard themselves were to report it directly to e-Bay you can bet action would be taken very quickly.

Peter
 Just because you report some things to ebay, they dont always remove them. In my time iv reported a number of items that quite clearly break their policy and nothing is done.

A few years ago someone had the bear faced cheek to copy one of my listings word for word, and l reported the matter several times and nothing was done, so l did what anybody would do, got two friends to bid against me, the bids went through the roof and l won the item. Never paid for it,a second chance offer was made to the next higher bidder and they never paid for it.
The seller did agree not to pursue it further and did relist it with his own wording, l did then buy it back for a very poor price and in time resold it with a big profit...
If you know some of the tricks, there are ways round some of the policy.
All is fair in love and war, except, when it comes to ebay.. ;)

The menu cover is only worth what some is prepared to pay, but they do come up more often than you might think,and go for all sorts of prices. However no photo shows the quality of these things, When you open one, can you begin to imagine who was there before you....Im surprised they lasted as long as they did onboard, either that or they had rather a lot in reserve.

The last set of menu folders they used were becoming a bit well used, you could open the menu and it wouldnt stay stiff, if you pardon my language.

Well --the person who sold the clock from the QE2 did alright for himself. Seems a heck of a lot of money for the clock, there again i suppose something is only worth what others are willing to pay for it. Personally--i would have prefered it to have been left on the QE2--it was after all part of the liner.

Here is a link to an affordable item---do any members know if this was actually used on the QE2?

Not in my day...napking rings were never used. Like the QE2 ashtrays they disappeared at a fantastic rate.

Nice souvenier of the QE2 and the Falklands--

Those were made for the ships staff by a gentleman from Boston called Andy Tabas. He made them for all sorts of occasions. I have one for Falklands, 180 club (darts) and one for a world cruise.
