$295.00

Built at the intersection of Connecticut Avenue at 'L' Street in Washington D.C., The Mayflower Hotel first opened its doors on February 18th, 1925.  The impressive ten-story 1,000 room hotel, designed by the archictectural firm of Warren & Westport, was advertised as being one of the largest hotels in the D.C. area, rivaling the famous Hay-Adams and Willard Hotels.

Revered as one of the most luxurious hotels in the Nation’s Capital, the hotel was also referred to as the "Grande Dame of Washington".  At the Hotel’s opening, it was said to have contained “more gold trim than any other building except the Library of Congress.”  Rich in history, it has been noted that President Franklin D. Roosevelt penned his famous ‘We have nothing to fear but fear itself’ inaugural address while staying at the Mayflower. With the White House renovations of the 1940s, Harry S. Truman resided at the Mayflower for the first 90 days of his presidential term, declaring his intention to run for presidency in 1948 at a dinner hosted at the hotel. The preferred hotel of many famous persons, politicians, American presidents, and Hollywood legends, the guest list has included Queen Elizabeth II, John Wayne, Barbra Streisand, Arnold Palmer, Mohammed Ali and many others.

Still in service today, the Mayflower Hotel continues to operate as one of Washington D.C.’s most important and historic hotels, now operating as the Renaissance Mayflower Hotel.

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 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.
