Circa 1820, .875 silver, Amsterdam, Netherlands, by Albertus Homan. After two hundred years, this coffee pot is as urbane and au courant as the day it was made. The Nederlandish traveled and traded everywhere, their taste was global and very refined. Second only to London in silver exports, they were also prolific silversmiths. Known for his superb quality and interesting designs, this coffee pot by Albertus Homan has an exotic coiled snake finial and an eagle's head spout. A similar example was sold at Christies. Very good condition with wear commiserate with age. Slight wimpling on one side, probably original to the make.

Remarks from Lawrence Jeffrey: "To own timeless style is delightful."
