Maker John Carter II.
Coffee and chocolate were established in England 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.
The coffee pot is in very good condition. Stamped underneath with a full set of clear silver hallmarks, lid with lion and makers mark. There is one small dent on the underside of the belly. 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.
