Condition Notes

The handle, tip of the spout, and finial have been repaired and painted in what appears to be a metallic paint that has now oxidized and darkened.


Ex coll. Mrs. E. Tatnall (Mary Corbit) Warner


The tall, tapering coffee pot, a form popularly called a “lighthouse” coffee pot, has a domed and overhanging lid and straight, tapered spout.  Delicately decorated bands in red border the top of the pot and outer edge of the lid. Small floral sprays decorate side of the pot.  Traces of the same enamel are visible at the edges of the molded-berry finial and molded strap handle.  The latter appears to have been extensively rebuilt.
