Vintage Silverplate King's Oldham Bowl

Vintage Silverplate King's Oldham Bowl


Located just northeast of Manchester, on the outskirts of the town of Oldham, is a classic, stone-walled English pub set within the green countryside. Called Kings Arms, the pub has been serving comforting, home-cooked fare for decades.

With a gleaming silver finish, this small bowl was produced by the great Walker & Hall silversmiths exclusively for Kings Arms. Acquired at auction in the north of England, the bowl is crested on both sides with a Tudor Crown along with King's Oldham. 

Whether as a small ice cream bowl, or a dish for nuts, dip or condiments, this handsome bowl with its regal crest is certainly fit for a King!

Strictly limited quantities (a total of 8 bowls are available at listing) and subject to prior sale. In very good vintage condition. Bowl measures 1.5"H x 3.75" in diameter.

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.
