Vintage Silverplate Hotel Majestic Coffee Pot

$75.00

Located on the northwest coast of England, Saint Anne's-on-the Sea was one of the popular Edwardian seaside resort towns that offered visitors fresh air and an escape from the crowded, industrial city. With tourism came accommodations and in 1910, one of the largest seaside hotels in England was built overlooking the sea. Starting out life as the "Imperial Hydro", its name was changed in 1920 to the Majestic Hotel – a name befitting its gargantuan scale.

In the 30s and 40s, stars and seaside vacationers travelled from miles around to stay in the hotel’s luxurious rooms and enjoy its fine cuisine and beautiful grounds. Among some of its illustrious guests were prime minister Winston Churchill, American actor and singer Danny Kaye, actress Margaret Lockwood and comedy stars the Marx Brothers.

But, despite withstanding two world wars, the grand old hotel could not survive the social changes generated by the 1960s. British seaside holidays paled in comparison to the allure of fashionable vacations abroad in sunnier and more exotic locales. Guest bookings at the Majestic started to decline and by the early 1970s, only bed and breakfast was being served at the hotel, because of staffing problems.

Once a magnificent St. Anne's icon, the hotel finally closed its doors and was demolished in 1975, replaced by a five-story apartment building.

Precious little remains from this once grand dame of St. Anne's, save fading memories and a few enduring souvenirs such as this classic hotel coffee pot made exclusively for the hotel. Forever at your service, this delightful find shares its brilliant and shining presence even still, sure to make a wonderful addition to your silver collection.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In fair original vintage condition with coffee staining and wear to the interior of the pot as shown in the alternate images. 6.75"H x 9.25"W spout to handle.

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.
