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.
This handsome coffee pot is in very good condition. The engravings are crisp. The silver has one mini dink to the front. The handle is possibly a replacement.
