Vintage Erhard and Sohne Silver Plated Brass Insulated Carafe 0.75 L Two Position Lid Stunning Profile Wolfgang von Wersin
This one is a stunner no wonder the current model can be found at williams-sonoma. Wolfgang von wersin designed this carafe, the thermal lord'' jug, for the german metal factory erhard & söhne in 1958. The curved lines of the body of the jug are reminiscent of art deco styling. The carafe is silver-plated over brass. The carafe holds 0.75 l or just over 3 cups of liquid. The carafe has double wall vacuum glass liner. It can keep hot liquid hot for up to 12 hours, and cold liquids cold for up to 24 hours. The carafe should not be immersed in water. There is a rubber seal along the base. Because this is silver plating on brass, the carafe is heavy. It weighs over 2.5 pounds. It has a rather interesting lid. The handle can stay opened in two different positions - see photos.
That allows for both easy pouring, and easy filling. The two-step opening mechanism is patented.
It is a stunning carafe. In terms of condition, there is some loss of the silver plating on one edge of the handle (minor) as well as the hinge where the lid connects with the base this one is a bit bigger - about the size of a pinky finger tip.
Please see photos as they are part of the item description. The inside line looks great, but the seal does not.
I would suggest getting a new seal if you want to use the carafe. Again, you can see the seal in the photos. Simply wonderful an exquisite addition to you mid century bar.
