French Lines offers a wide range of original objects from larger vessels belonging to the Compagnie Générale Transatlantique and the Messageries Maritimes!

Having inherited historical collections from the Compagnie Générale Maritime (CGM) and Société Nationale Corse Méditerranée (SNCM), both derived from Transat and Messageries, and whose objective is acquiring heritage from other French companies, French Lines possesses several sets of certain original items. Several copies of each item are kept in the heritage collections. These copies are protected, meaning that they cannot be sold.

However, certain pieces that French Lines has inherited a significant amount of, such as complete series of menus, posters, promotional items and tableware, are available to buy. The proceeds from the sale of these items is exclusively reserved for the development, preservation and enhancement of historic collections.

As such, you can now purchase rare and authentic pieces from some of the most iconic companies of the French Merchant Navy!

Our store offers you a large range of products, including brochures, posters, postcards, printed menus, medals, magazines, promotional items and original silverware. This wide selection of items are a piece of sentiment that will make your gifts so original.

An entire range of souvenirs are also available: stationary, postcards and posters inspired by original artwork, reproductions of photographs and watercolors, as well as films and several books devoted to shipping companies and the history of the Merchant Navy.

Your purchases help fund scientific activities for the conservation, development and restoration of collections that are carried out daily by French Lines.

Visit our shop and don’t wait any longer to own a piece of history!
