Rare Antique Pontchartrain Hotel, New Orleans Samovar
This scarce antique silver plate samovar is from the historic Pontchartrain Hotel in New Orleans. It was acquired from long-time collector of rare hotel, railroad and steamship silver pieces.
The piece is by far the gem of all the hotel silver pieces that I've ever acquired!
The Pontchartrain Hotel, located on St. Charles Avenue in Uptown New Orleans, Louisiana, was named after Louis XIV court's Count de Pontchartrain. In the 1940s, it was refashioned as a luxury hotel and became a veritable who's who of prominent locals and visitors. This iconic hotel is still in existence today.
This samovar has all of the bells and whistles. A fancy raised crest on the front, incredibly ornate mounts, feet and handles.
The condition is superb with an extraordinary patina and clean interior.
It weighs 15 pounds and measures 23" tall, 16" wide from handle-to-handle, and 12" deep. It is manufactured by Reed & Barton and stamped, "HOTEL PONTCHARTRAIN". The date symbol is 1910.
This spectacular and rare piece would be the prize of any hotel silver collection. What an amazing piece to serve from or have on display!
