Vintage Hotel Silver - Silver Plated Ladle Waldorf Astoria International Silver For Sale
This sale is
for a silver plated ladle made by the International Silver Company for the famous Waldorf Astoria in New York City. This ladle has the distinctive Waldorf design incorporated into the handle, however, it is not marked with "Waldorf Astoria." I have never seen another piece of flatware or hollowware with the "Waldorf" design without the name of the hotel on the piece somewhere. SO, I guess I cannot really say this ladle is from the Waldorf because it is not labeled with the name of the establishment. Maybe because this is a piece used in the kitchen ... they didn't bother with the markings of the hotel? (But then why would they bother making it with the beautiful Waldorf design?) Hmmm .. maybe it is because there is a bend in the handle; it didn't meet the standards of the Waldorf Astoria. I really don't know why it is lacking with the hotel name .. but I am sure of the design. The International Silver Company did not release this design commercially nor was it available to any other private establishment. It does seem to have seen some action because it has some surface scratches .. but no plate loss. It has a slight bend in its handle. I have rarely seen any large service pieces from the Waldorf .. so this may be as good as it gets. It is marked "International Silver Co." on the handle. It measures approximately 9 1/2inches in length. It will not disappoint.
