It keeps the hot liquids hot and the cold liquids cold. The bottom has the Waldorf Astoria name engraved. It says, 14 oz and in a square it says, 70, and there is an 09 above it. Not sure if this is number 9 of seventy.
If it is, it would be a very desirable item because of it's low count. It has very tiny bumps under the plating and blemishes. Maybe you know how to clean it better.
Measures 7 inches tall and 9 inches wide including the handle and spout. The base measure 4 1/8 inches. Anyone who collects Waldorf Astoria memorabilia will love this unique pitcher.
