This handsome antique silver chocolate pot and stand is in excellent condition. Both silver and wood have no damage or restoration. The marks are still clear and able to be read on both pieces, they are by the same maker and two years apart 1705 and 1707. Excellent colour.

Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
A coffee pot on warmer is usually known as a coffee biggin because of the use of a burner, biggins usually being camp fire pots. It is unusual at this date for a coffee pot to have a matching warming stand, coffee biggins are not normally found until later in the 18th century during George III’s reign.

*Britannia Standard silver. In 1696, so extensive had become the melting and clipping of coinage that the silversmiths were forbidden to use the sterling standard for their wares, but had to use a new higher standard, 95.8 per cent. New hallmarks were ordered, “the figure of a woman commonly called Britannia” and the lion’s head erased (torn off at the neck) replacing the lion passant and the leopard’s head crowned. This continued until the old standard of 92.5 per cent was restored in 1720. Britannia standard silver still continues to be produced even today.
