Vintage Palace Hotel Madrid Ashtray

$48.00

The Palace Hotel was built on the former site of the palace of the Duke and Duchess of Medinaceli. In March of 1911 the first stone was laid and only 18 months later the Europe's largest hotel was inaugurated on October 12, 1912 in the presence of their Royal Highnesses, King and Queen. Each of its 500 bedrooms featured ensuite bathrooms - a first hotel in Europe to boast this amenity, along with a telephone in every room. 

This grand dame hotel signified a new era in Madrid. Developed on a suggestion by King Alfonso XIII, who would go on to share a toast with his wife, Queen Victoria Eugenie of Battenberg, at the opening, The Palace was a modern hotel fit for royalty - its grand sweep of outer steps leading to an interior decked with crystal chandeliers, including one named the “Palm tree” for its branch-like shape. Tapestries from the 16th and 17th century lined the walls, and are still in place around the atrium.

The Palace Hotel quickly became a focal point of life in Madrid, and a popular spot for celebrity sightings, as an increasing number of luminaries made it their choice stop while in the city—a list that has grown to include Igor Stravinsky, Pablo Picasso, Marie Curie, Maria Callas, Bruce Springsteen, The Rolling Stones, Josephine Baker, Buster Keaton, Richard Strauss, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Michael Jackson, Albert Einstein, Henry Kissinger, Salvador Dalí, and Ernest Hemingway.

Found at market in Paris, a handsome ashtray made exclusively for the historic Palace Hotel in Madrid. With its vibrant orange crest and hand-painted lines accenting the bright white porcelain, this elegant tray is sure to be a prized addition to your collection.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In very good vintage condition. Measures 5.25" x 3.25".
