Antique Crystal Hotel Oakland Oil & Vinegar Cruets
From my personal collection, I'm offering a very rare and special pair of early 1900s glass and crystal oil and vinegar cruets from the old Hotel Oakland.
The Oakland Hotel is a historic building in Oakland, California. It was built as a luxury hotel in 1912. Many presidents dignitaries, and celebrities stayed there from Franklin D. Roosevelt and Herbert Hoover, to Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks. In 1943, after closing due to the Great Depression, the Hotel Oakland converted to a military hospital and operated as the Oakland Area Station Hospital for 21 years. In 1979, Hotel Oakland was converted to affordable housing for seniors, a function it still serves to this day. In 1979, the Hotel Oakland was designated Oakland Landmark #31, and is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
These amazing cruets have the hotel's large crests embossed on the front. They measure 8-1/2" tall to the top of the stoppers and the bases are 3-1/4" in diameter. The stoppers are cut crystal. They are in superb condition with no chips or cracks. Some light residue in the inside bottom.
A stunning, treasured hotel collectible!
