This pitcher made a great addition to my Arabic metal teapot collection. It holds about 500ml of water. It pours well and is solidly made, no leaks. The red jewels are a bit of an overkill, but they add variety in a group of plain silver pots. I love the shape of it and the whimsical ornaments. I don't know if it can be used for just water or also for hot tea, or is it intended purely for decoration. I assume it is not dishwasher/detergent safe, like my other pots ("Latest Model Silver Color Moroccan Tea Cups Set", from this website). The delivery was prompt. Very satisfied with this purchase!
