A mahogany deck chair, with a tiny White Star Line emblem carved into the headrest, that survived the sinking of the Titanic and that memorabilia collector Chris Lowe, from Swindon in Wiltshire, bought for 30,000 ( 35,000 including buyer's premium). * in a unique memorabilia sale from the doomed liner at auctioneers Henry Aldridge and Son in Devizes Wiltshire. He said: "I'm glad I've managed to keep it in the UK. I was drawn to it because of its rarity. It's an investment. It's a hell of a lot of money but I'm satisfied with the price. I had heard it was expected to fetch up to 35,000." The chair is believed to be one of around 50 chairs thrown overboard by Titanic baker Charles Joughin as the ship sank in April 1912, in the hope that passengers could cling to them to stay afloat.
