Vintage Dessert Cup from Hotel Peabody (Memphis, TN)I was employed by the Hotel Peabody in Memphis, Tennessee in the late 60s. The hotel was sold to another hotel chain and I was given this dessert cup as a souvenir. It is silver and has the name "Hotel Peabody" engraved on the bottom.

Being Thrifty and CreativeI had gotten him a pair of Old Navy jeans, but before he could wear them, he got a hold of a Sharpie marker!
