Titanic last dinner menu auctions for $119,000

The sale took place in New York on November 7.

The menu is for the last meal served aboard the ship 

Heritage comments: "Given the penchant for late dining among the privileged classes of that era, it seems plausible-even likely-that these gentlemen were still at their table when the initial collision occurred, as some time passed before the passengers became aware of what had happened.

"It is easy to imagine one of the four surviving men slipping this menu into his jacket pocket as he made his way to the lifeboats."

The highest price paid for a Titanic menu at auction is $125,000, set for a second class lunch specimen from the day of the tragedy.
