S.S. China Cabin


All that glitters is 22K gold highlighting thirty- six Victorian patterns. The cut- glass floral windowpanes, walnut woodwork and oak floor distinguish the 19th century reception room. The brass and crystal chandeliers are electric replicas of the oil- burning fixtures of the period.

The Social Saloon of the S.S. China Cabin was salvaged from the top deck of the 1866 side- wheel, transpacific steamer when it was burned for scrap metal in 1886 in Tiburon. The cabin, 20' x 40', was barged to Belvedere Cove to become part of a private residence for ninety years. In 1978 it was restored as a national maritime monument for use again as a social saloon.
