Coffee Pot with Walnut Handle

Coffee Pot with Walnut Handle , c.1760

Coline Allan

Silversmith:Coline Allan
Aberdeen, Scotland, died 1774

silver, walnut wood

This coffee pot displays all the hallmarks of rococo period decoration, with chased swags and foliage, yet it is still more restrained than work produced by English goldsmiths of this period. Allan has combined ornament and function with the double scroll walnut handle, an elegant addition to the silver body of the pot.
