The luscious cane-yellow color of this coffee pot was a Wedgwood specialty in the 1830s. The inspiration for this special color was fields of wheat, so it makes sense that the finial on the cover was made in the form of a sheaf of wheat. Both the cover and the pot are decorated with relief molding in a basketweave pattern. This was another Wedgwood specialty. The factory produced geometrically exact ribbing on useful objects such as this coffee pot.
The underside of the pot is marked ‘Wedgwood’ (see image #12).
10.5″ high x 6″diameter.
Excellent with small original firing flaws at the base of the spout.
