PALMER HOUSE Candleholder ~ Hall China


Hall China was one of the few manufacturers who used this dark teal color on their institutional ware.  This candleholder is also accented with gold overglaze lines and topmarked with a P in a wreath.  It's also backstamped Property of Palmer House, Chicago.  It's unusual to find any Hall backstamped with the user's name.

Palmer House has an interesting history.  It first opened in 1871 but burned just thirteen days later in the Great Chicago Fire.  It was rebuilt as the "World's Only Fireproof Hotel" and opened in 1875.  It was rebuilt again in the 1920s, bought by Conrad Hilton in 1945 and today is known as Parker House Hilton.

The candleholder measures approx. 5 3/4 inches in diameter and stands 3 inches tall.  Excellent condition with some wear showing on the P wreath and one color skip on the base, as is shown in the picture.  There is some black soot inside the candle portion.

Thanks for looking!
