Offered for your consideration is this unique and rare piece of the Big Apple, a set of bouillon cups made for the famous Vanderbilt Hotel of New York City by Mayer China in the Aragon pattern, sometime between January and March of 1951, as the date code on the back indicates.

The Vanderbilt Hotel opened its doors on January 10, 1912, built by the scion of the Vanderbilt family - Alfred "Freddy" Vanderbilt, who lived with his family on the top two floors.

Just three years later, Freddy would perish at sea with the sinking of the Lusitania by a German U Boat.

The Vanderbilt Hotel on Park Ave. and 34th St. had a storied, but brief history, with its magnificent architecture overlooking Central Park.

Now, you can have a piece of that history by purchasing these two beautiful restaurant ware pieces from a bygone era, and get with it a piece of the hotel that Freddy built, and, also a piece of Big Apple / NYC history.

Condition: Very good, no chips, no cracks, no crazing

Dimensions: 3 7/8" D x 2 3/8" H
