An Empire Style French Old Sheffield Plate Coffee Pot

This is a rare example of French Old Sheffield Plate! The fact that some Sheffield Plate was made in France is a little known fact, and this beautiful French silver plate coffee pot is a rare example. It was made circa 1810, in the Empire Style popular at the time.

It is in very good condition, and due to plate loss it has been re-plated at some stage in the recent past. It is therefore in perfect condition to use, either as intended, for coffee, or for water, or even wine!

A rare example of a French Old Sheffield Plate coffee pot made circa 1810.
