Antique Green Mill Gardens Oval Platter

Antique Green Mill Gardens Oval Platter

$95.00

Nothing less than a piece of true Chicago history, we are under the boozy, jazzy and slightly illicit spell of this Antique Platter from the legendary night spot, Green Mill Gardens. Opened on the north side of Chicago in 1907 as Pop Morse's Gardens, it changed hands and names just 3 years later and became the Green Mill Gardens. With a large green windmill on its roof, the Gardens was the most elegant night spot in the city, boasting a lush sunken garden where patrons enjoyed dining and dancing under the stars while some of the country's best cabaret acts entertained.

By the 1920s, the sunken gardens of the Green Mill would be sold off to make way for the Uptown Theater. What would remain was the original cabaret lounge and the name would be shortened to simply Green Mill Cocktail Lounge. While some bars try to capture the allure of bars from the past, the Green Mill is the real deal. As the oldest continuously running jazz club in the country, the Green Mill has the gritty pedigree of being Al Capone's favorite hangout and is rich with legends. Performers as renowned as Al Jolson and Billie Holiday were regulars on the Green Mill's stage and today it remains Chicago's most iconic jazz club.

Produced in Germany in 1914 exclusively for the Green Mill Gardens, this oval platter is made of durable white ironstone and is decorated with thin lines of rusty red and green, along with the Green Mill Gardens' evocative logo. A memento of jazz age Chicago's rich and storied past, the platter will be a treasured addition to any collection.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In very good antique condition. 9" x 6".
