Huge Vintage Los Angeles Biltmore Hotel Crested Coffee Pot
Amazing large 72 ounce silver plated coffee pot from the historic Los Angeles Biltmore Hotel dating to 1924, the year after the hotel opened. The hotel has an brilliant history of famous guests including Hollywood actors, presidents, and dignitaries. In the early years the hotel hosted the Academy Awards.
This fancy pot has the Biltmore raised crest on both sides. It has a large spout with fancy detailed handle and rims--note the fine leaf motif where the handle meets the pot. Because this is an early piece, it has quite a bit more detail than later Biltmore hotel silver.
It is very weighty and measures 10" tall and 10" from handle to spout. It has a gorgeous sparkling patina with some light surface scratches. No noticeable dents or dings. The interior has a bit of wear and tarnish and holds 9 cups of fluid.
Manufactured by Gorham and stamped, "LOS-ANGELES BILTMORE 1924 72 oz".
An extraordinary historic piece for your collection!
