From one of Paris' most famous restaurants, we are pleased to have found at market a vintage silverplate sauce boat produced exclusively for Le Pré Catelan Restaurant.

Located in the peaceful Bois de Boulogne park in the 16th arrondissement, Le Pré Catelan has long been a popular destination for Paris high society. Housed in an opulent building dating from 1905, Pré Catelan, was originally envisioned as a luxury casino and restaurant. The casino didn’t materialize but the restaurant did. In 1908, the celebrated Parisian restaurateur, Léopold Mourier, owner of the restaurant Foyot, and the Café de Paris and later Le Fouquet’s, bought Le Pré Catelan and made it one of the most fashionable places in town.

Today, the spirit of the original Pré Catelan continues with its opulent Belle Epoque interior and a kitchen that serves impeccable French classics and has earned three Michelin stars.

This one-of-a-kind memento from one of Paris' most elegant addresses has a lovely reed and ribbon applied border and the famous Le Pré Catelan name engraved in cursive script on the side. Its classic silhouette and historic provenance will make it a beloved addition to your hotel silver collection.

Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In very good vintage condition. Sauce Boat measures 8" in length including the handle x 3 3/4" at its widest point. Capacity is approximately 7 ounces.  

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.
