Vintage Italian Home Lines Silverplate Gelato Dish

Vintage Italian Home Lines Silverplate Gelato Dish

$58.50

Founded in 1946 in Genoa, Italy, Home Lines began operations by purchasing the Norwegian America liner Bergensfjord, renaming it SS Argentina and using it on services from Italy to South America. As the company grew and acquired additional ships, it would eventually switch its service to the prized North Atlantic route, sailing between Italy and New York.

Home Lines became one of the most highly regarded cruise lines in the world, with superior ships and hospitable Italian crews offering impeccable service. In 1988, Home Lines was purchased by Holland America, thus ending her proud 42 year history.

Found at market in Italy, we are pleased to offer these delightful Silverplate Gelato Dishes once used aboard the ships of Home Lines. Produced by Italy's great Broggi Silversmiths of Milan, these classic pedestal gelato dishes are side-marked with the Home Lines' regal crown crest. Sturdy and true, they are sure to proudly serve you, just as they did the passengers aboard the great Home Lines ships.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. Some dishes have a more distinct crown crest than others. In good vintage condition with signs of age and use. Sold individually. 9 total available. 3" x 4".

Learn More about Hotel Silver

Once found in Grand Hotels, chic cafés, elegant restaurants as well as luxury steamships and the dining cars of the great locomotives, vintage hotel silver beautifully evokes the Golden Age of Travel. Enduringly crafted using sturdy nickel silver as its base metal and coated with a thick plating of pure, gleaming silver, vintage hotel silver is unmistakeable for its simple, classic lines and its pleasing heft. Often crested with the name of the establishment, the pieces bear the gentle, lovely patina often referred to as a “butler’s finish”.

Produced by the great silversmiths here in the United States, as well as those in Britain and on the Continent, most hotel silver dates from the 1920s to the 1940s. Prized for its perfect blend of form and function, hotel silver was made to withstand the rigors of daily use. Highly collectible, vintage hotel silver is a wonderful addition to any home.

Evoking the days of elegant travel, there are many new ways that hotel silver can be enjoyed. A milk pitcher or sugar basin makes an elegant vase for flowers or fresh herbs on the kitchen counter. A collection of oval platters adds sparkle and depth in a hutch when not being called into service for a buffet or dinner party. A toast rack becomes the perfect way to display photographs, hold fingertip towels in a powder room or organize mail in the office. Mix and match cutlery brings a relaxed sophistication and elegance to any tablescape. Whatever the piece, vintage hotel silver is sure to stir memories not only of your own travels, but of exotic destinations and ports of call from parts unknown.
