Vintage Ritz Carlton Silver Plated Punchbowl GerberHepp

Offered is a Large Vintage Ritz Carlton Silver Plated Punch Bowl . This Punchbowl is great! It is in used but good condition. The punch bowl is pictured (very small) on the Ritz Carlton web site on several of the dining room photos - usually holding 3 bottles of wine on ice!

We cleaned this punchbowl but did not shine it very much - it is naturally shiny... It was manufactured by Gerber Hepp - both companies are still in existance - Gerber, of course, is the manufacturer of knives and Hepp is still in the business of Hotel Cutlery.

We looked up the meaning of " Hotel Silber " - "Hotel silver might just as well have come from a train or an ocean liner. It refers to high-quality plated commercial silver. It was -- and still is -- typically made from a triple-plated base of nickel to withstand wear and tear, giving it a characteristic heft that is greater than silver-plated copper or brass." (thanks to )

18/10 refers to the Chromium and Nickel content of the stainless steel used in making the punchbowl. " 18/10 refers to the percentages of chromium and nickel in the stainless steel alloy. The "18" refers to the chromium content, which gives flatware its strength, and the "8" or "10" refers to the nickel content, which gives it its shine and rust-resistance." (thanks to )

This punch bowl is 14-5/8
