Here is an early 19th-century (1780 -1820) Staffordshire dry-bodied (unglazed) black basalt coffee pot that imitates the shape of one of the silver coffee pots of the day. It features chinoiserie figures and architectural and floral motifs. It has a hinged lid that is attached with a metal hinge pin. It is the companion to the teapot shown in Berthouds book on teapots, plate 874 (where he leaves it unattributed as to the maker).It is in near perfect condition with only two ridiculously small fleabites to the underneath of the bottom rim. It has a recessed base without any marks. To coincide with the popularity of all things "neoclassical" in English cultural life, Wedgwood transformed what was first known as "Egyptian Black, " a traditional Staffordshire stoneware product, into "Etruscan" an ornamental ware that would subsequently be called Black Basalt.
