Some Historical Information about the Antlers Hotel : In 1871, General William Jackson Palmer founded the city of Colorado Springs. His vision was to create a posh resort community featuring a luxury hotel and tree-lined boulevards. Thus, the first Antlers Hotel had begun welcoming guests in 1883. Nestled in the shadow of majestic Pikes Peak, the Antlers soon became the center of the community and the benchmark for future hotels. Over 100 years later, the third rendition of our historic ancestor, Antlers Hilton Colorado Springs still maintains its prominence as the hotel leader in Colorado Springs. This plate is in great condition with very good Dark Blue coloring. It will make a fine addition to any related souvenir pottery / china or flow blue transferware collection. As the plate glaze is highly reflective, please disregard all of the photography-related glare and shadowing.
