Notes: The 14-story, 406-room Davenport Hotel at 807 West Sprague Street, Spokane, Washington, opened September 1, 1914. It contained five dining rooms and three ballrooms.
Some of the Davenport dining rooms were located in the two-story section, built in 1901, that adjoined the hotel. The Maddock china used there (see link below) has "Davenports" in script lettering with #5055 green border. Haviland and Bauscher also made china services for the Davenport.
In 2021, the Davenport operates as one of Marriott Hotels' Autograph Collection hotels.
Maddock Pottery produced a Lamberton china service that is crested with the hotel's shield in green and coin gold. Thick and thin coin gold rim lines complete the decoration. This pattern was used for the bedroom china service, that included pin trays. It was supplied by The Crescent, a Spokane department store.
