  • Early 19th Century Creil French Mochaware Coffee Pot

    $1,900.00

    A Creil mochaware peach-colored coffee pot made circa 1810.

    This elegant coffee pot features a dark brown mocha design on a light peach body. Mochaware was developed in Staffordshire in the late 18th century, but spread to continental Europe through the Middle-Eastern moss agate trade. Moss agate stones, which sport a similar tree-like design, were exported to the West through the port of al Makha, translated in English to “Mocha.” While moss agates were used as semiprecious stones in jewelry and objets de vertu for the upper classes, their dendrite design inspired potters such as Creil to create mochawares for more quotidian usage.

    Dimensions: 10 in. H x 6 1/4 at widest point (25.4 cm H x 15.9 cm W)

    Condition: Excellent visual condition, with invisible professional restoration to cover and spout. Some minor staining to clay body under the glaze on the foot.
