Early Ambassador Hotel, Los Angeles Champagne Bucket
Very rare 1920s large silver plate champagne bucket from the famous Hotel Ambassador in Los Angeles, California.
The Ambassador Hotel opened in 1921. Prominent figures such as Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, John Wayne, Lucille Ball, Marilyn Monroe, and The Supremes were the many entertainers that attended at the Cocoanut Grove. In addition, the hotel was the site of the assassination of United States Senator Robert F. Kennedy in 1968. The Ambassador Hotel was closed to guests in 1989.
This beautiful bucket has a raised crest on the front. It measures 9" tall and the opening diameter is 8". It measures 11-1/2" from handle to handle.
Lovely patina in good condition with little signs of wear. Quite solid and heavy.
Manufactured by Gorham and stamped, "THE AMBASSADOR LOS ANGELES CALIFORNIA".
A really special piece of hotel silver for your collection.
