Vintage Silverplate Park Lane Hotel Teapot


Built in the 1920's, the grand Art Deco style Park Lane Hotel with its white-stone façade and red mansard roof is set on Piccadilly in the exclusive central London area of Mayfair, half a mile from Buckingham Palace. The high-ceilinged guest rooms laid out over eight floors have views of Green Park or leafy Mayfair and boast original fireplaces. 

A pied-à-terre for serious Bond Street shoppers and businesspeople, the hotel offers decadent in-room spa and salon services. The breath-taking Ballroom glitters with Art Deco mirrors and classic British television programs such as Jeeves and Wooster and Brideshead Revisited were filmed on location at the hotel. Situated at the heart of the hotel, the Palm Court serves morning coffee, evening cocktails, and afternoon tea in elegant Park Lane style. With its vaulted stained-glass ceiling, plush sofas and palm trees, it is one of the hotel's most notable Art Deco highlights.

Acquired at auction, an exquisite Silverplate Teapot from the exclusive Park Lane Hotel. Capturing all the elegant style of the Park Lane itself, this petite single service teapot is crested with the Park Lane's classic monogram while the iconic English rose on all of the Park Lane's silver pieces is crested just above it.  The provenance and beauty of this piece is sure to set the heart of any hotel silver collector aflutter!

Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. 6 3/4" x 4 3/8". 1/2 pint. In very good original vintage condition with slight signs of wear and use.

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.
