Chocolate and Coffee Pots from Colonial Williamsburg collections, a parade of eighteenth-century goodies.
Note the lamb’s head on the end of the spout!
I am a cook who loves to write. And I am a writer who loves to cook. However. my biggest passion is photography.
At a local junk shop I spied a great anthropomorphic pewter jug with great patina and attitude. The clerk and I wondered what it could be and because of it’s small size I determined that it was probably a chocolate pot.
Too bad it didn’t have a lid or its dolphin spigot because after I googled it I realized I had a Dutch chocolate pot circa 1750 and if it had been complete it would have been worth 1,500. I paid $38.
