Stunning vintage Hawaiiana Matson cruise line dinner menu, with colorful artwork by American painter Eugene Savage. This beautiful image is entitled, “Aloha . . . Universal Word”, and is dated 1951!

Eugene Savage was an amazing artist and this mural shows off his renown Art Deco style and attention to detail. Please view the detail photos to appreciate the striking imagery and brilliant colors. The menu is a lithograph print, offset printed on light card stock. It is a large size antique dinner menu measuring 21 inches by 13.5 inches when flat. Check out the varied and interesting array of wonderful foods offered! This fabulous dinner was served on board the S.S. Lurline on Friday, January 19, 1951.

It is in very good antique condition, especially for its age at close to 70 years old! The colors are still rich, bright, and crisp with no fading. The paper shows age toning with a few corner creases and wear along the fold. This vintage Hawaii image would be beautiful framed as tropical or tiki bar decor!

The artist, Eugene Savage, was commissioned by the Matson Navigation Company to create memorable keepsake menus for their voyages and other marketing materials. In order to generate excitement and allure for Hawai'i as a world class tourist destination, Matson developed an ambitious and enduring advertising campaign. Their famed luxury liners, the 'white ships' were instrumental in the development of tourism in Hawai'i in early 20th Century. This lithograph image began appearing on Matson menus in 1948.

This vintage Matson Cruise Lines Hawaiian art series depicts colorful and romantic Hawai'i, capturing the spirit and romance of the islands during this early time period. So lovely and striking, beautiful vintage tropical decor artwork!
