Antique Hotel Commodore Perry Candlestick

Antique Hotel Commodore Perry Candlestick

$78.00

From Toledo, Ohio's long-shuttered Commodore Perry Hotel, we are proud to present this handsome antique ironstone candlestick. Richly decorated with a beautiful rendering of a masted U.S. naval ship, the holder bears the hotel's historic name and is embellished with an intricate floral border design in rich shades of gold, rust, green and black.

Produced in the 1920s by the long-shuttered Onondaga Pottery Company of Syracuse, New York, this classic candlestick would have graced tables in the hotel's elegant Travertine Dining Room or the Quarterdeck Lounge.

As sure as it created a glowing ambiance in the hotel, it will equally light your tablescape in historic American Grand Hotel style. 


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In excellent antique condition. Measures 2.25" tall x 4.5" in diameter.

Learn More About the Commodore Perry Hotel

Built in 1927 for a reported 4 million dollars, the 17-story Commodore Perry Hotel was downtown Toledo, Ohio's center of unparalleled luxury and glamour. At the time of its completion, it was the largest hotel between Chicago and Cleveland.

Named after Oliver Hazard Perry, the famed U.S. naval officer who became a national hero when he defeated a British squadron in the Battle of Lake Erie in the War of 1812, the Commodore Perry was known for its lavish style. Throughout its history, this grand hotel was host to movie stars, professional athletes, gangsters, and other wealthy patrons, including Harry Truman, Bob Hope, Elvis Presley, Jimmy Stewart, the King and Queen of Greece and other notables.  

Changing times and economic realities led to a re-imagining of the hotel and, in 1968, it re-opened as the Commodore Perry Motor Inn. During the 1970s, downtown Toledo began to suffer economically and so did the Commodore Perry Hotel, which sadly closed its doors in 1980.

In 1996, work began to convert the hotel into a luxury apartment building which it remains today with stunning views of downtown Toledo and fading memories of Commodore Perry's many decades as a grand hotel.
