I have a small collection of hotel silver….thanks to a small cadre of stylish friends. Substantial and gleaming, it is a pleasure to use for daily use and entertaining. Hotel Silver Ltd is an amazing resource for hotel silver here in NY. You’ve probably seen their wares on the 7th floor of Bergdorf Goodman if you’ve walked the floor after a lunch at BG or perhaps you spotted it in Newport this week at the Flower Show!
Ginger Kilbane launched her line of vintage European hotel silver in 1988 at gourmet food store in Darian, CT. Her selections from the Savoy on London, the Gritti Palace in Venice, the Bristol in Paris and the Grand Hotel in Rome all found new homes with hostesses who appreciated their shine, patina and history.
And, how do they get the silver so shiny?! They use Twinkle Silver Polish. I’ve just added it to my Amazon cart! Doesn’t everything just look prettier in a silver bowl?!
I LOVE Watson kENNEDY FOR A GREAT COLLECTION OF hOTEL sILVER. tED hAS AMAZING TASTE.
