Silver Tea Pot from The Drake Hotel

My mother gave me this teapot. From all indications, it was used at the Drake Hotel in Chicago. See pictures. Can anyone tell me if this has any worth? Is it all silver, or does the “silver soldered” mean it plated? What does the 26oz refer to?

Hi there and thanks for joining us. Yes, its silverplated. The “26 oz.” is the volume, 26 fluid ounces vs. a quart which is 32 fl. oz. A nice example of hotel silver. Check eBay’s “completed items” under the silverplate section to see what things like this are actually selling for vs. what is being “asked”.

Regards,

Uncle Vic
