To state that I am thrilled to be able to offer to you this amazing piece would be an understatement.To be able to possess and hold it for the time being is an honor. Matthew Boulton (1714 - 1811 ) was a toy maker, silversmith,manufacturer, a minter of English coins and a world renowned industrialist who made many other important discoveries and accomplishments of the time.This 1790's Sheffield Plate Coffee Pot is remarkable and in remarkable condition.Purchased in the 1930's in London from William Walter's Antiques as shown with the original tag.How cool is that?While doing research on his highly collected pieces I was surprised to see so many with the copper bleeding through.But then I think the saving grace on this piece was that it had probably not been polished since the 1930's.Image the surprise and thrill to unearth the incredible engraved mermaid on the front.I am not sure whether this was a whimsical addition of a family crest for someone,but I just love it.As for the scrolling wooden handle ,I think it off sets the silver so much more than a silver handle would have.Complete with the early company's hallmark on the bottom.Condition: excellent, no dings,dents or thinning of silver.Measures 11 1/2" high and 9 1/2' wide from spout tip to end of handle.
