The design is attributed to William Archibald Welden. Upper & lower chrome spheres with Bakelite accents. This futuristic piece is a companion piece with the Revere Empire Cocktail Shaker. Item appeared in the "Gifts 1941 Revere Copper And Brass Incorporated" catalog. In that catalog, it was called the "Hot Or Cold Server," #144A, and it originally sold for $5.00.
Just a bit over 9" tall, chrome needs cleaning & Bakelite could use some polish.
