Vintage Silverplate Pullman Railroad Tea Pot

$195.00

Inspired by the iconic luxury Pullman trains in the United States, the Pullman Car Company of Britain was founded in the late 1800s. Working with George Pullman's company in Chicago, the luxurious train cars were originally imported to England and began offering a new level of rail service. The first complete Pullman train, called the Pullman Limited, began service between London and Brighton in 1881.

All the Pullman cars were painted a distinctive umber brown and cream with the name of the car in large gilt letters. The Pullman trains were staffed with attentive stewards and offered an exceptional service more luxurious than ordinary trains. A perfect example of this level of service is this handsome Vintage Silverplate Tea Pot produced for use aboard the Pullman trains of Britain.  With art deco lines and the regal Pullman crest stamped in the side of the pot, it is a lovely memento from the glory years of rail travel.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. 5 1/2" spout to handle x 3 3/8" tall. Circa 1930. In very good original condition.

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.
