Al Capone's Tableware

Here are examples of Al Capone's extravagant items from his 93 Palm Island estate.
These are now added to the Mario Gomes collection.

Ornate crystal aperitif glass with flower design.
(Mario Gomes Collection)









Glassware took a trip to see Al Capone. A Special thank-you to Margaret Regan for making this happen!
(Mario Gomes Collection)























An ornate taste that either defined Capone's success to some or gaudiness to others.

Glassware placed on Al Capone's flat stone marker.

The bottom set is where this particular glass came from.

Startling Detective magazine for September 1931 mentions the gold rimmed china, ornate glassware and table linen.

Many parties where held in his Miami home with city officials, and well known sports and entertainment celebrities of the day. Famous people such as Walter Winchell, Damon Runyon, boxers Young Stribling and Jack Sharkey are just a few that visited and ate at the Capone home. This was beside the regular roster of famous gangsters passing through on a daily basis. One day you could have local Florida businessmen visiting, and the next day you could witness Charles "Lucky" Luciano, Frank Costello and Ciro Terranova swimming in Al's pool. Other notables were gangsters Ralph "Bottles" Capone, Eugene "Red" McLaughlin, his squeeze at the time Mary "Kiss of death " Collins, Frank Nitto, Jack McGurn, the Rago brothers from the Chicago funeral home, reporters from various newspapers, the list went on and on.

Plate number 1
Al and Mae Capone's Hutschenreuther Royal Bavarian china service. Very ornate hand engraved 24k coin gold designed pattern with 14k gold foliate border over celadon colored field. This fine china may have been chosen by Mae and purchased by Al. Mae paid attention and made sure to include Al's favorite light green color, such as seen in his taste for shirts and bathroom tiles. From all evidence, this particular dish was well used for many dinners at 93 Palm Avenue in Miami.

Al and Mae Capone's Hutschenreuther Royal Bavarian china service.  These were the star attraction at the Miami home when Al and Mae hosted many breakfasts and dinners with friends. After Mae's and Al's passing, Sonny Capone and daughters enjoyed many family gatherings of their own using these same glassware and plates.
(Witherell's Capone auction catalog)















Al Capone's granddaughter Barbara signed COA.












Tablecloth

A certified swatch from Al Capone's tabecloth used for the dinner parties at 93 Palm Avenue. Some enterprising person bought the tablecloth at auction and cut it up into thousands of little one inch squares and had it individually encapulated and offered for sale. Yes, as small and as trivial as this item may seem, I just had to have one in my collection!
(Mario Gomes Collection)








The tablecloth from which these swatches were made.
(Witherell's Capone auction catalog)






Copy of Witherell's given with swatch. Note that they removed the Witherell's title since they are reselling it in multiples, and can only give copies of the original COA.






2 Plates and 1 glassware now part of the Mario Gomes Collection.
