  • Catalogue Essay

    The Grand Hôtel was one of the most modern and prestigious hotels in Brussels. Its restaurant was known as one of the best in the city. In 1897, directly after the international exhibition, the owners commissioned the well-known Art Nouveau architect Paul Hankar to renew the interior design of the American Bar and Grill Room, which opened its doors in 1898.
    Phillips de Pury & Company would like to thank Professor Werner Adriaenssens for his assistance in cataloguing this lot.
