Note Camark's reds with unglazed backs were almost identical to pieces made by Broadmoor. (weak Camark ink stamp)

This second Camark ashtray differs with its notch at the matchbook holder slot.

















This Park Lane Hotel bud vase was made by Broadmoor Pottery in Denver.



It is embossed "Park Lane Denver" with a green second glaze. Note Broadmoors were seldom double glazed or embossed.

















These two Broadmoor-Denver ashtrays were likely designed for the Park Lane Hotel, but are not marked as such.



The dancer in cream is a Denver-only glaze.












Note Colorado Pottery also shows the ashtray, Colorado Springs marked, with a white dancer over a red tray.



Their piece has the ink stamp "Park Lane Hotel, Denver, 'The Smart Hotel of the West'".
