Object Literature

Coffee and chocolate were established as part of social life by the end of the 17th century and coffee pots can be found from the 1680’s onwards. Initially, these tall form pots (as averse to the squatter teapot shape) were used for both coffee and chocolate however we term chocolate pots to be those with either a removable finial or removable lid for inserting a swizzle stick. We also nominate some early side handled pots as chocolate pots.

Object Condition

This handsome coffee pot is in very good condition. With a full set of clear English silver hallmarks on the body, the lid with lion mark only, makers mark below the pot. The engravings are crisp. The silver has one mini dink to the front. The handle is possibly a replacement.
