Construction was completed on the five-story, 100-room hotel in 1922 and went through a series of owners. The most likely owner in the date range of this china would have been J. B. Harris, c. 1935 – c. 1943. Its fate is unknown at this time, but its entries disappeared from Hotel Red Books in the mid-1960s.
