~Antique French Enameled Coffee Pot with with Flowers
This is one of those emblematic items that was in kitchens all across France
for decades early in the last century.
Virtually every French kitchen had a coffee pot sitting on the old-fashioned wood-fired range.
This one is superb with its beautiful 'raised' enameled decoration of 'bleeding hearts', a flower much loved by the French.
Many of these old bits of French 'nostalgie' have simply rusted away so that
they are now quite difficult to find in this condition.
But this one has survived beautifully and even though it does have some areas of rust,
nowhere is it rusted through.
As well there are an area of chips to the enamel at both ends of the handle, on the lid and at the base which you can see in the photos, but we now find that this dings add to the charm of these old enamelware pieces giving them a vintage 'patina.'
This pot also has its insert for the ground coffee but the mesh at the bottom has disappeared.
Still, all in all, this charming old enamelware coffee pot is in truly excellent antique condition.
The measurements are 13 inches tall with a base diameter of 6 1/2 inches.
As happens, after the 2nd world war, this sort of thing was considered 'quaint and old-fashioned'....
just what we value and admire today!
In the 1950s homemakers preferred a more 'modern' look so thousands of these items
and many other wonderful old things were just 'thrown out'.
Now they are rare and hard to find
and a piece like this will turn up only Very Occasionally.
A truly charming and authentic antique French accent for your home.
