    It's hard to say, the piece is Art Deco in style, which still all the rage through WW2, so it's from the right period. There are ways to find out, such as find photo's of the interior of the hotel, but involve more work than the goblet is worth. If such pieces are in the currect style for the period, and have Hotel markings, then yes the chances are good it was in the hotel during the war.

    Thank you lovejoy for this information...I will look into it as much as I possibly can...I would not have thought of nor have the knowledge of the time period aspect...but it is good information I can use. Thanks again!
