This 1940s era Pyrex Flameware coffee pot is in FABULOUS condition for its age - sparkling bright and clean.
This is a number 7824B model coffee percolator, per its bottom marking. It comes complete with the inside glass pump and aluminum basket, and a dark brown Bakelite handle. The lid has two unusual triangle shapes molded into the top and two "ears" to hold it in place. The Bakelite handle is held in place with a clever internal "sleeve" -- each side has a neat appearing screw head, with one of them screwing into the other, INSIDE the handle.
On the bottom of the pot, the Pyrex Flameware logo and information is molded - SEE OUR PICTURE please.
This pot is a 4-cup size, but there are NO etched side markings. It comfortably holds four, six-ounce cups of water. This particular model apparently did not come with a lid on the basket.
CONDITION: Superb! There are NO cracks and NO chips, even on the lid's "ears." The spout is in perfect condition. The bottom rim edge of the glass pump is just slightly rough rather than smooth, but this is the way it was made. Also, there is light scuffing on the very bottom, from use.
IMPORTANT -- SEE OUR LAST TWO PICTURES: We can find only two very minor issues: 1) The top of the Bakelite handle is slightly faded; and 2) The red "V" points to a very shallow flake on the UPPER SIDE (not the bottom edge) of the glass pump base. This flake was hard to photograph and is smooth (so it will not interfere with any future coffee making).
MARKINGS: LOTS !!! including:
THE POT: Pyrex Flameware logo and information on the very bottom;
THE LID: PYREX MADE IN U.S.A. around the top; and 78C on the other side of the top
THE PUMP: PYREX on the base top and E-KK on the other side
THE BASKET: PAT.NO. 2204158 (NOTE, this patent was applied for in 1938 and granted in 1940)
THE HANDLE: 78H on the left side below the screw
THE STAINLESS BAND: PYREX and a fire logo on the right of the handle; STAINLESS on the left
We are so pleased to offer this unusual pot - it is one of just a very, very few we've come across with a Bakelite handle, and absolutely the best condition of any so far!
