CHOCOLATE POT GEORGIAN FOR DECORATIVE USE

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.

A fine piece of coppersmithing, but sadly has severe wear to the base & lining.
A rare piece none the less & will grace any copper collection.

Diameter of base:  cm, 5.9″

Height Pot: 31 cm, 12.2″

Total Weight: 821 grs, 1.81 lb

Handle: wood

Finish: signs of previous service.

Base: Severe ware in need of repair if use is desired. A trained coppersmith should have no problem in replacing this.
