The pitcher pot itself has two layered walls of metal plating, one to the exterior. And one to the interior.
The purpose for these walls of metal are for insulation. Acting as a "Thermos" so to speak, keeping the liquid within the pot either cold or hot!
This set was coated with heavy black tarnish, and has been polished to. Remove a large majority of the the tarnish, though not all completely/entirely.A Gothic style letter "P" is visible just underneath the spout (view photo #5 for this detail). There is quite a lot of silver plate loss detected on both the pitcher and stand. The interior of the pot is clean and stain free, with no indication of corrosion/rust or pitting. Both the pitcher and stand displays quite some wear, and the the upper base to the stand. Has 4 small dimples, though both pieces still remain to be a beautiful part of our history. Light scratches & scuffs all around due to use and age. Overall, this set is considered to be in good vintage condition for it's age.
