Offered for your consideration is an extremely rare 1913 era – side logo 5 ¾” tall by 2 ¾{ wide (across the top) bud vase – flower vase – tulip vase made for the famous Wallick’s Hotel and Cabaret that was located in New York City. This is the first such vase that I have ever seen from the Wallick Hotel. I also believe that this is from the original order of silver place for when the hotel was renamed as such. If you collect New York City or Vintage Hotel items, you might wanted to consider this extremely rare vase for your collection.

Historically, the hotel originally opened in the 1880’s as the Barrett House. The impressive 8-story hotel was located at the corner of Broadway and 43rd Street. In 1905, the hotel was sold to the Wallick Brothers, Louis C. Wallick and Adrian L. Wallick. They continued to operate the hotel under the name of the Cadillac until 1913, when they changed the name and venue of the hotel to the Wallick. The hotel became very famous for it’s cabaret shows, restaurant, and hotel accomidations. It became a primary social point in New York City; especially, before the onset of Prohibition.

In about 1919 or 1920 and after the onset of Prohibition, the Wallicks sold the hotel. The new owners renamed the hotel “The Cadillac” Hotel. It continued to operate up through the Great Depression. However by 1

Interesting, the Wallick Hotel also had a very ornate china service plate that featured a Victorian woman performer on the front that was done in multi-colors and was highly decorated. This bud vase would have been used in connection with this plate. Also, the Wallic’s had made a special “C-H – Toledo – New York” logo pattern china for a short time for both the Cadillac Hotel and the Secor Hotels that was actually used at both hotels.

The Wallicks also operated the Secor Hotel in Toledo, Ohio, that they constructed between 1906 and 1908. Additionally, they also operated the Deshler – Wallick Hotel in Columbus, Ohio, that was completed in 1916. Also in the 1920’s, it appears that the Wallick had also divested themselves of these hotels was well.

This vase would have been used in the hotel’s lounge, dining rooms, for tables in the cabaret rooms, café, and even for room service. It would have been used in connection with the Wallick Hotel China and glassware for actual table service. It is the heavyweight type Steamship, Restaurant, and Railroad silverplate. It was made by the Reed & Barton Silver Co., is silver soldered, has the catalog number of 4048, and is marked on the neck the of the vase “Wallick’s”. The top portion of the base is done in the most stunning intricate etched floral design that really adds to the appearance of this piece.
