Built to resemble a Parisian block of flats with a neoclassical interior, the five-star Ritz had a tremendous impact on the direction of the luxury hotel industry. The hotel restaurant's ceilings were even specially reinforced to handle the weight of the numerous chandeliers. This fine silver-plated piece was once used in a restaurant in the hotel.
