Large blue and white flowered antique French enamelware cafetière parisien - coffee pot with filter.
Genuine French antique, c. 1880's; in excellent condition, very rare size and in excellent condition.
This is one the oldest pieces of antique French enamelware I have ever come across. It would have been among the earliest pieces made at the end of the 19th century.
The handle is flat, instead of rounded, which later became the norm. You'll also notice that it is riveted, not soldered, to the body. Soldering came into common use in about the 1920's. Another wonderful clue to its age is the elegant spout, designed to look like porcelain; it too is riveted, not soldered. Still further, it's easy to see that the base was added as a separate piece. All of these traits confirm the authenticity and age of this beautiful cafetière in the latter part of the 19th century. It is a rare and historic example of early French enamelware.
What makes it even more remarkable and highly collectible is its pristine condition. There are no major chips or damage, just some minor wear entirely keeping with its age (please take a close look at the photos).
It is decorated with delicate blue and white flowers and hand-painted blue filets along the contours of the spout, handle, lid and base of the filter and coffee pot. The charming decor is high quality and in very good condition without damage.
The filter is complete and in very good condition with normal wear. The inside of the pot is clean and intact with no holes.
16.5 inches high (with filter and lid)
10 inches high (without filter)
11 inches wide (spout to handle)
4.75 inch diameter at the top and bottom of the filter
