Vintage Hotel Edison, New York City Samovar
Photos don't capture the beauty of this rare vintage silver plate samovar/coffee urn from the Hotel Edison in New York City. The Hotel Edison has been setting trends in New York City's Theater District for decades, dating to its opening day in 1931 when Thomas Edison, the hotel's namesake, turned on the marquee lights of the hotel himself.
This fabulous piece has a brilliant patina with the hotel's name across the front. It has fancy claw feet, ringed handles, a wooden finial and a wood bead on the spout mechanism.
The piece measures 18" tall to the top of the finial, and approx. 9" wide. It's quite a heavy and solid piece. Comes with its original burner. The interior is spotless, and perfect for serving. The piece has very little wear with some light scratches. A small dent on the backside.
Manufactured by International Silver Company and dated 1953.
This is a marvelous piece for your hotel silver collection, and a perfect New York City collector's piece. This would make a fabulous centerpiece on a sideboard or buffet!
