The coffee pot has a carved fruitwood handle. It has a cast swan necked spout also with floral repousse decoration. The domed lid has a cast round button knop.This coffee pot is hallmarked on the body below the rim to the right of the handle, the marks are slightly rubbed and obscured with the repousse decoration. See the images for each. The lid has the lion passant mark in the shaped shield mark for the period. Jackson's Hallmarks state that Paul Crespin is an highly important maker and a serious rival to Paul de Lamerie, certainly his equal. Condition: Excellent antique condition, a couple of very minor marks commensurate with age and use.
