Striking International coffee server from the Waldorf Astoria in New York City, circa 1940s. This listing is for the one remaining server.

They measure 8" tall and 6" from handle to spout. polished and ready for service. Very light pitting, scratching on the exterior but in excellent vintage condition. Wear consistent w/use, but in amazing condition for their age and their previous life!

Bottom markings read, " International Silver Co.
The Waldorf Astoria #11 007 60 and a number 72 in a square.
These wonderful coffee servers are from the "old" Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in NYC.

Rec'd from a friend who received them from a gentleman who served as a doorman there in the 1940s.

When I see these, I wonder what the waiters wore and what guests they might have served with these lovely pots. I feel fortunate to have inherited them.

The gentleman friend went on to work for CBS for many years and was very successful. He kept a few artifacts from the old Waldorf to mark his time there and these were among his choices.

As an aside to this: The gentleman's fellow doorman at the Waldorf was
Fred Hayman of Rodeo Drive fame. These two East Coast buddies made their way to California to make their fortunes.

Here is an interesting brief article about Fred Hayman

"The Godfather of Rodeo Drive" highlighting his achievements as the purveyor of LA Style .
