Literature. Coffee and chocolate were established as part of social life by the end of the 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.


This handsome antique silver chocolate pot is in very good condition. Stamped with a full set of English silver hallmarks on body, the lid and removable finial with lion mark only (standard practice at this early date). Excellent colour. This pot has been tested for water retention and does not leak. It pours superbly. Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
