Maritime Art, Models & Militaria

Pridham's is pleased to present The Maritime Art, Models & Militaria sale. It will feature the lifetime collection of the late Captain Philippe Iskander Georges. Captain Georges was born in Heliopolis, Egypt, in 1937. He attended James Watt Nautical College in Scotland, and later Warsash Maritime Academy, Southampton, to attain his Master Mariner qualification. Captain Georges was at sea for 17 years travelling to every corner of the globe: from the Far East to Scandinavia, Africa, Australia, and the Americas. On coming ashore in 1969, he continued his career with Saguenay Shipping in Montreal, and later with Canadian Pacific. Known as Phil, he was a lover of antiques, and an avid collector of maritime paintings and memorabilia. Captain Georges was a larger than life personality and sadly passed away in 2020. His collection will include some exceptional ship models, half hulls, paintings, and related memorabilia. He always hoped his collections would advance the awareness and appreciation of maritime life. Along with the Georges collection, Pridham's is pleased to offer other fine inclusions from like-minded collectors in the marine and military collecting areas.
