    Description: A rare early Victorian coffee percolator, we have been unable to trace a similar example in the literature or internet. The percolator consists of 4 separate components, all sterling silver. The first is a cylinder with a finely perforated base, this has 3 rims, the top to hold the lid, one two-thirds of the way down, we presume to hold the cylinder in a coffee pot, and the third inside to hold the coffee container. The top portion is finely engraved with shells and c scrolls, which matches the lid. The second is the lid, which has a beautifully cast rose finial, which acts as the handle, held in place with a hand made silver wing-nut, the lid is also finely engraved. The third is a cylindrical coffee container, also perforated but with larger holes, and central cylinder to hold plunger, this sits inside the main cylinder snugly. The fourth is the strainer or plunger, with central silver rod, and flat perforated base, also large holes. All the components are pleasing quality, this was a well made item. A coffee percolator is described by Newman (Illustrated Dictionary of Silverware, page 80) as a device for infusing coffee by causing hot water to filter repeatedly through ground coffee. He describes a cylindrical receptacle, with interior perforated bottom receptacle, and flat circular strainer. The interior fittings are removable so that the coffee pot can be used to serve when made. All 4 items are fully hallmarked, the rose finial and wingnut are also hallmarked, another sign of quality. William Morisse worked between 1831 and 1853, he seems to have specialised in tea and coffee pots. Please note the original coffee pot that this percolator would have been used with is not present, we assume it was separated and used separately. We would welcome information on similar items.
