This exotic pattern was introduced by the Meriden Britannia Company in 1886. It is aesthetic and rather eerie with male and female faces and swirling plumes and rosettes. This is a highly collectible pattern. The coffee pot is in its original as found condition. It is 7 1/2" tall to the top of the finial. It is marked with the Meriden balance hallmark as shown. There is scattered plate wear to the base Britannia metal on the lid and bottom. There is a dent on the bottom near the spout but below the line of sight and one of the links to the lid is missing. It still opens and closes and lays flat. These blemishes do not seriously detract from this superb example of Victorian hollow ware with its original plate. It has been priced accordingly. We will be listing a matching tea pot, sugar and creamer. All the pieces have the number 1980 on the bottom and are part of the same set. The face on the base of the spout is the most dramatic.
