Description

Antique Chocolate Pot.

The human love affair with chocolate extends back thousands of years, but the options for consuming chocolate weren’t always so abundant. When the Spanish first introduced the treat to Western Europe in the 17th century, there was really only one: hot chocolate. It was prepared in its very own vessel, the chocolatière, or chocolate pot.

The lining has a couple spots of copper showing. However, I personally would not hesitate to use this. Chocolate being non acidic should cause no issues. Most chocolate & sugar work cookware is bare copper for this very reason.
Includes the “VR” Royal warrant verification mark.
