19th Century Large Victorian Britannia Coffee Pot. This 6 cup coffee pot measures 10 inches tall. The handle is ebony and the finial at the top is faux ivory. The bottom of the pot is marked: B “crown” B – Patent Broadhead & Atkins, Sheffield. The firm dates to the partnership of Roger Broadhead and Henry Atkins at Love St., Sheffield (1834-1853) active in North St. Works, Sheffield, England. Britannia metal was first introduced by Sheffield manufacturers in the second half of the 18th century and is a product of the industrial revolution. It was also known in its early days as white metal. This interesting piece of Victorian history has been beaten up over time and has a bad repair on one side. Thus, it can work well to decorate a cupboard or hutch to hide the damaged side in the center of the body. There is a less obvious dent in the spout. None the less, a nostalgic piece for a lover of coffee pots and British history.
