We spent a couple of hours this morning going through just SOME of the cupboards and closets, shelves and drawers, cubbies and cabinets… not to mention every available surface in the home, drooling over the biggest collection of hotel silver we have EVER seen! There are hundreds of pieces of hotel silver, hundreds of other unique silver-plated objects, large sets of sterling flatware, and oodles of small/medium sterling items.
Just some of the marks/logos/insignias on the hotel silver: Olympic Hotel, Bellingham Hotel, UPRR, Smith Tower 42nd floor, Winfield Scott Hotel, Governor House, Hilton Hotel, Albany Hotel, Brandon Hall, Hotel Cominos and Grill, Moore-McCormack Lines, Los Angeles Biltmore, USN, Grindley Hotelware, Washington Plaza, Sheraton, Great Northern RY, States Lines, Kahala Hilton, Ambassador Hotel Los Angeles, Vons Café, EH Elkington Co, Broadmoor Hotel, Dr. Robert C. Coffey Clinic and Hospital, Clark’s Restaurant Enterprises Seattle, Hotel Statler, Hotel Radisson, Tacoma Com. Club, Walter N’S, Grace Line, Wallace Stolen from Desert Hotels, Bon Marche, Forest Hill Hotel, Hotel Broadwater, The Union News Company…
This will be a private, by-appointment-only sale. Due to HOA restrictions, an estate sale cannot be held, but we will be able to invite a “small group of interested collectors” to the home who are interested in buying. We will have more information soon.
