Chocolate and Coffee Pots from Colonial Williamsburg: Slideshow

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!


  • 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.
