A large, engine-turned Redware Coffee Pot, dating to the last quarter of the 18th century: 1780-1800. The coffee pot is 10 ½” tall (top of the finial on the lid) and the handle to spout distance is about 9”. Bulbous shape with nice engine-turned decoration on the body. Lid is ribbed and there are molded decorations on the handle and the base of the spout. The piece has a red clay body with shiny glaze. I will call this coffee pot English, but some knowledgeable friends who have examined it say there is a possibility that it could be American, from around Philadelphia: engine turned redware is known to exist from Pennsylvania.
The coffee pot displayed magnificently and definitely makes a “statement!” There are no chips, cracks, lines or glaze loss. There is a professional restoration to an edge chip in the lid, to the tip of the spout and possibly to a chip on the top edge(all are very well done and all invisible without a black light). This restoration is well done and I have marked the lid with a white sticker (see last photo) because I know where it was done; the restorations on the spout and the top edge were done before I owned the coffee pot and can only be seen with a black light. I can send additional photos if anyone wants to see the repaired sections up-close; but they are seamless! Because of the age and rarity of this coffee pot, some restoration should be acceptable.
