Literature. 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.


Very good condition. Stamped with a full set of marks underneath, lion mark to the edge of the lid. The hand chasing is sharp and very fine. The engraved crest and motto are worn.
