Detroit Book Cadillac Hotel,albert Pick & Company Teapot And Tray, Nickel Silver

Up for offers is this set of individual silverplate coffeepot and matching tray.It was produced for the Book Cadillachotel in 1924. These pieces are in good shape, with no rub off or oxidized spots. The tray is slightly bent in the middle, so it doesnt sit flush, but it's not tippy, and displays well. The history of these pieces are wonderful, and who knows, Lou Gehrig may have personally used these himself. The coffeepot measures 6" high, and 7" from handle to spout, and the tray is 10 1/2" long, and 7 1/4" wide.The bottom is marked Albert Pick & Co. Bridgeport Indiana, nickel silver, silver soldered 10 oz. The Book-Cadillac was Detroit's tallest building, and the tallest hotel in the world, when it opened in 1924. The bar and coffee shop played court to Detroit's notorious Purple Gang, whose leader Abe Bernstein maintained residence on the top floor until his death in 1968. On May 2, 1939, New York Yankee first baseman Lou Gehrig collapsed on the hotel's grand staircase. Gehrig, who would later be diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, decided to sit-out that afternoon's game against the Detroit Tigers, ending his consecutive games played streak. The 1947 Frank Capra movie State of the Union featured scenes that were filmed at the hotel. Scenes in the 1973 cult movie Detroit 9000 were shot at the hotel. The HGTV show House Hunters aired an episode entitled "Settling Down in Detroit" in which a couple searches for a historic home in Detroit. They end up choosing one of the newly restored condos in the hotel. Michael Symon, who has appeared on four Food Network/Cooking Channel shows as a host and a judge, owns and operates the Roast restaurant at the Westin Book Cadillac Hotel in Detroit. He has hosted the shows Food Feuds and Cook like an Iron Chef. If you have any questions, please write, and we will answer in a timely manner. Thank you and good luck.
