Manufacturer: L. Hutschenreuther
User: St. Nicholas Plaza Hotel
Date of creamer: 1930
Notes: This 800-room hotel was constructed as part of the Carew Tower complex in Cincinnati, Ohio and opened for business on January 28, 1931. It was originally to be named St. Nicholas Plaza, after a hotel that previously stood on the site. A lawsuit was filed by the Hotel Sinton against Starrett Investment Company, owner of the new hotel, claiming rights to the St. Nicholas name.
This is another pattern for the St. Nicholas Plaza Hotel that would have been ordered before the hotel's name was changed to the Netherland Plaza Hotel. Rosenthal China produced a similar pattern to this L. Hutschenreuther pattern, backstamped for Starrett's Netherland Plaza.
