Silver Coffee & Chocolate Pots

 
Silver Chocolate PotTea, coffee and chocolate became popular in Britain in the first half of the 1700s. 

Coffee and chocolate pots are taller than teapots to keep the spout above the sediment. Chocolate pots have a hinged or detachable cap in the lid for a stirring rod. The earliest coffee and chocolate pots, before about 1730, were tapered cylinders with the handle at the side, rather than opposite the spout. Later in the 1700s, they were made in a more curved "baluster" shape. Around the turn of the 1800s, vase-shaped pots were made but most manufacturers soon reverted to the baluster shape.
