The pot, hallmarked London 1771, maker’s mark ER, decorated with scrolls and floral decoration with a hinge lidded cover, domed and surmounted by a pineapple finial, the curved spout heavily decorated and with a polished shaped wood handle, is one of the pieces consigned by an anonymous gentleman from Stockton-on-Tees and catalogued as the Stockton Silver Collection.

The collection is mainly of Georgian silver and auctioneer Keith Calvert told the Antiques Trade Gazette that it includes “several extremely nice pieces” in addition to this coffee pot, including a set of four George III silver plates with raised gadrooned borders and armorial crest and the inscription Avaunces et arches ries, London 1774, and a set of five silver salts on shell applique legs with hoof feet, hallmarked for London 1781.
