Vintage Silverplate South Western Hotel Bournemouth Coffee Pot

Vintage Silverplate South Western Hotel Bournemouth Coffee Pot

$175.00

Named after the South Western Railway line that ran from London through the resort town of Bournemouth on the south coast of England, the South Western Hotel opened its doors in the late 1800s. Conveniently located near the central railway station, the hotel appealed to the traveling business man as well as holiday makers coming to the coast for fresh air. Boasting 5 bars (including the beloved Scottish Bar complete with bar maids dressed in traditional Scottish costumes), the hotel also had both a dining room and a restaurant known for good food. 

From the long-shuttered South Western Hotel in Bournemouth, we are pleased to present this gleaming silverplate coffee pot. Produced exclusively for the hotel by England's famed Elkington silversmiths, the pot is side-stamped with the town and hotel's name within an oval crest and is date code stamped with its year of manufacture: 1893.

This handsome pot will surely serve you with gleaming distinction just as it proudly did for years at the South Western Hotel.  


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In very good original antique condition with wear to the silverplate on the interior of the pot as shown in the alternate images.  7.25"H x 6.75"W spout to handle.

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.
