Vintage Silverplate Cumberland Hotel Platter

$475.00

The historic Cumberland Hotel, located at the end of Oxford Street near Marble Arch in central London, takes its name from the Duke of Cumberland (son of George II 1721-1765) and has been the site of a public house from as early as 1747.

The Hotel received a royal visit by King George V and Queen Mary two days before the public opening on December 12,1933 - just in time for the Christmas holiday.

When it opened, the Cumberland Hotel featured all the latest developments for comfort. It was sound-proofed, double glazed, air conditioned and all 900 rooms had their own en-suite baths. All air entering the hotel was filtered to clear out any London smog. Two thousand staff were employed at the hotel and a specially built annex provided accommodation for 300 girls who worked at the hotel. There was one bath to every four girls and they ate in their own restaurant on the ground floor of the annex.

Produced exclusively for the Cumberland Hotel of London, we are pleased to offer a lovely Vintage Silverplate Platter which carries all the history of this classic grand hotel. Crested with the name of the hotel and embellished with an applied deco border, this magnificent platter is sure to be a cherished addition to your collection.


Strictly one of a kind and subject to prior sale. In very good restored vintage condition. Circa 1933. 18 1/4" x 14".
