You Can Own a Small Piece of the Statler
A good, but clearly very cheap, Friend of Unfair Park who shares my affection for the old Statler Hilton hotel downtown sends word: An Arkansas eBay'er is looking to offload some coffee creamers and a sugar bowl that came out of that hotel way back when. Says the seller: "The two creamers are marked 'Hotel Statler Hilton Dallas.' All are from International Silver Co., silver soldered. Creamers date back to 1953 and 1954; sugar bowl is dated 1956," which is when the hotel officially opened. Statler Creamer -- now there's a band name.
