I dearly love these Victorian-era American made (usually by Manning & Bowman) graniteware (also called enamelware) pieces! They are lovely and distinctive and well-made and make a smashing decor statement!
This is a very large coffee pot! It is not marked in this instance. The metal has what appears to be a silver plate on what is normally pewter-looking. The enameling has a white background and there is a floral motif on the design with brown, shades of green, and pink. There are no chips in the granite. There is a dimple close to the knob on the lid. The cement that is used around the metal spout and the band toward the base of the pot have been restored with a rubbery cement and there is no wiggle. They did a nice job because sometimes the cement has left its position and there can be some wobble in these areas. I believe the spout got pushed back a bit at some point in its 140 years of life. Overall, this 11 1/2" impressively tall pot is in very good condition.
I always like to know what I am paying for something so the price here is going to include shipping and insurance.
I have more of these from my own treasured collection so stay tuned if you like them too!
