Hotel Cracked Ice

Hotel Cracked Ice ~ Hotel Ice Tub

Ice Dish, Liners, Tubs, & Plates

Item Number:  UR-03
Approximate Size:  10″ D – 7″ H
Production Dates:  1917 to mid-1920s

This item was only produced for a few years and is considered to be a rare item.  It was also known as the “Hotel Ice Tub”.  Of all the ice-holding vessels in the American pattern, the Hotel Cracked Ice is the largest.  It has a holding capacity of approximately 10½ pints.  This item was not inexpensive when it debuted, costing almost three times as much as the Large Ice Tub.  I would imagine that the hotel trade, the fortunate … or the wealthy, were among the initial owners of such a grand piece.
