The plaque commemorates the launch of the Titanic and was presented to the shipbuilding company that built the ship just a day before it left Southampton, England, on its ill-fated maiden voyage. The plaque came to Spain 12 years ago when a British man offered it to a Barcelona art dealer. It was then quietly absorbed into a private collection but has been loaned to the Spanish Titanic Foundation for a Titanic-themed exhibition in Granada that will run until January 2016.
