These highly collectable and very colourful vintage Canberra souvenirs, were hand painted below decks by the Goanese crew members from scraps of wood and sold primarily to other crew members and the odd passenger in the know.
This unusually large version of a hand painted life ring measures 37cm Diameter and retains its vibrant colours.
2 pictures of SS Canberra are framed in the centre and can be easily changed.
Collectors of hand painted life rings can call us to see our collection of smaller souvenir rings.
