This is not my usual cup of tea or should I say coffee, but I saw this and I thought hmm..that is really an incredible design(work of art) for a coffee pot ! This 42 cup " Tricolator "coffee percolator urn is in brushed gold colored aluminum, walnut wood, and wood-grained metal, with diagonal handles and an asymmetrical finial on top. It screams 50's 60's "coffee klatch" ! It has a great "Atomic Age " look to it and it works great! There is a scratch and a couple of dings in the urn but the wood is in great condition. It's 21" tall and 8 " in dia. also it's very light weight. Too bad I drink mostly tea. I drink one cup of coffee in the morning but 42 cups !! I don't think so. I'm nervous and jittery enough as it is -Mike-
