The Coffee Pot stands on a circular pedestal foot which is decorated with beading. The foot rises to a baluster shaped body and the curved spout is unusually decorated with bands of bold applied beading. The domed cover displays a beaded rim and terminates in a cast Neo-Classical urn finial. This piece has its original fruitwood handle and displays cast shell mouldings where it is attached to the main body. The pot is fully marked in the foot and with the sterling mark on the cover. This piece, most unusually, comes with a matching stand which was made in London in 1790 by the quality Salver maker, Elizabeth Jones. The stand has three beaded feet and displays a raised beaded rim. Both the main body of the Coffee Pot and the Salver are engraved with a contemporary Goat Crest.
