19th C. Hotel del Coronado Handled Sugar Bowl
Rare late 19th century tureen or open sugar bowl from the famous Hotel del Coronado, in Cororado California. It was acquired from a long-time collector of rare hotel, railroad and steamship silver pieces.
When the hotel opened in 1888, it was the single largest resort hotel in the world. It has hosted presidents, royalty, and celebrities through the years. The hotel has been featured in numerous movies and books. The Hotel del was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1977 and a California Historical Landmark in 1970.
The piece dates to the late 19th century and is so very fancy! Beautiful rim and feet. Bright, shiny patina with light pitting.
It has the hotel's crown logo on the front and measures 7-1/2" from handle-to-handle, 4-1/4" wide and 3-3/4" tall to the top of the handles.
This probably had a lid at one time and was used as a tureen. It functions as a sugar bowl as well.
Manufactured by Reed & Barton and marked ,"H-del-C" the hotel's very old mark.
Really collectible old piece of hotel memorabilia!
