Description


This fine antique Victorian sterling silver Louis coffee pot has a baluster form.


The body of this impressive coffee pot is embellished with fine chased floral and foliate arrangements incorporating a scroll bordered shaped cartouche to either side.


The cartouche to one side is vacant and the other bears a contemporary bright cut engraved crest* depicting a griffins head couped above the motto ‘Verus amor patriae’ - True love of country.


This fine antique coffee pot is fitted with a plain hinged hallmarked domed cover encircled with a chased undulating scroll and floral motif decorated border.


The cover retains the original hallmarked fine and impressive silver finial depicting an Asian figure in traditional attire, securing to the interior with a wing nut.


The shaped rim of the cover is encircled with an applied scrolling border accented with leaf motifs.


The coffee pot is fitted with an impressive hallmarked S scroll handle ornamented with a chased decorated leaf ornamentation incorporating a scrolling thumbpiece.


The shaped upper and lower sockets of the handle are embellished with stylised leaf decoration in junction with the body.


The fine swan necked spout is ornamented with impressive eagle head style decoration to the lip in addition to a bearded mask design to the underside.


The undulating shaped socket of the spout is embellished with fluted lobed decoration accented with textured leaf decoration.


This antique Louis coffee pot is supported by an impressive pierced decorated frame incorporating four impressive scrolling bracket style feet accented with bead decoration.


This fine coffee pot was crafted in the same style and by the same maker one year prior to the teapot W8946; they would sit very well together.


* This crest and motto pertain to the Hughes family.


Date: 1864
