Vintage Silverplate The Raleigh Coffee Pot

Vintage Silverplate The Raleigh Coffee Pot

$250.00

An historic hotel built on an historic site in the nation's capital, The Raleigh opened its doors in 1893.  The site of The Raleigh at 12th Street N.W. and Pennsylvania Avenue was where then-Vice-President Andrew Johnson took the oath of office of President of the United States following the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln in 1865.

Completely redesigned and expanded in 1911 by architect Henry Hardenbergh of Plaza Hotel fame, The Raleigh was a magnificent 13-story Beaux Arts structure that was one of the grandest of Washington, D.C.'s grand hotels. It played host to countless politicians and visiting dignitaries over the many decades and its dining room, known as The Pall Mall Room, was one of the city's top night spots attracting the best entertainers of the day.  

As always, times and fortunes change and the once premier hotel eventually closed its doors in 1963 and was demolished the next year to make way for a mid-rise Postmodern office building.  The Raleigh's loss in 1964 was as devastating culturally to the city as it was architecturally.

What remains today are fading memories and precious few mementos of the once-glorious hotel, such as this gorgeous Vintage Silverplate Coffee Pot made exclusively for The Raleigh.  Produced circa 1920 by the great Reed and Barton silversmiths, this lovely pot is bottom-stamped with The Raleigh name and features ornate silver-soldered side mounts, and an elegantly embellished spout, handle and finial. It beautifully captures the splendor of The Raleigh and will be a treasured addition to your collection.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In good vintage condition with light staining/discoloration to the interior of the pot from age and use. 6 3/8" x 7".
