 Presented is a fabulous antique American coin silver tea or coffee pot. This piece was made by Philadelphia makers Whartenby & Bumm, and dates to circa 1816-1818. The pot is made in a striking, ornate style, beautifully hand chased with a foliate design around the lower half of the body and the base of the spout. The spout itself is done in the form of a bird's head and neck, finely detailed and well done. The pot stands on four claw feet, with mounts in the form of some mythical winged creature. The finial of the lid is nicely cast in the form of a rose with leaves surrounding, and the pot has a matching continuous band of rose decoration around the shoulder. Around the base and the lid are continuous bands of eight-pointed stars. The pot has a monogram of CAC on one side, but the other side has no monograms. Quite an impressive and eye-catching piece.

The pot has a capacity of 6 cups, or 48 ounces/1.4 liters. The interior is spotlessly clean and ready for use.

The pot is stamped on the underside with the maker's mark for Thomas Whartenby & Peter Bumm, silversmiths working in Philadelphia circa 1816-1818.

This piece is in excellent overall condition. The insulators have been replaced at some point in the past, we believe they are a celluloid material. There is a tiny dent on one side of the body, which is hard to notice. The pin of the lid's hinge is a little loose, this could be glued or epoxied in place easily. There are no splits, no other dents, no leaks, no monogram removals, and no repairs.

The pot stands about 10 inches tall.

The pot weighs 997 grams or 35.2 regular ounces.
