A vintage French enamelware chocolate or coffee pot with removable lid.
This enamel pot is in blue enamel with a red rim, and there is handpainted floral decoration in bright enamels which is original to the manufacture of the pot. The colour of the background enamel is a lovely turquoise blue, in ombre or intentionally faded colour, graduating to very pale blue or white at the top of the pot.
This item would have been used in the early to mid Twentieth Century for warming chocolate milk or coffee on the stove. It is watertight and in clean useable condition. There is some chipping and rusting to the enamel, especially at the seams and rims, as usual with an item of vintage period. For this reason we recommend using for dressing your home rather than beverage making. Please study the photos to see condition.
The pot is ideal for styling it up with some cottage garden pickings, wildflowers from the hedgerow, sunflowers or a bunch of herbs from the garden.
Size approx 21cm high, handle to spout 23cm, diameter 13cm at base.
We are able to post out parcels from Metropolitan France and shipping fees are shown. Please allow plenty of transit time, as European post is notoriously slow!
*The customer is responsible for any import duties incurred for an item. We will require a telephone number to add to the customs forms, to help prevent any delays or transit problems. If you refuse delivery of an item due to customs costs, please be aware that your parcel's postage costs will be forfeit, although we are happy to refund the item purchase price upon return.
**Please also note that most deliveries within France and some other European Union countries are usually made to a Pont Relais collection point, there are usually a number of these located in shops and supermarkets in each town, and you will be given the opportunity to specify which one you prefer if this service is available for your location. Otherwise I will select the shop with the longest opening hours within your area. Deliveries to most other European destinations are generally to your doorstep unless it is much cheaper to use Pont Relais.
***Currently deliveries to the UK are becoming easier as time goes by. The sales tax is being included in any sales so there should be nothing extra due to pay when your parcel arrives, subject to customs clearance.
Our items are carefully selected antique and vintage pieces from France and they show the character and charm of years of use. We do not sell new or reproduction items so you can expect to find signs of the age and life that the piece has led. We believe this history adds to the story of an item. Obvious damage and faults will always be mentioned in our descriptions but minor age-related condition issues are not considered a detriment.
