This very rare travelling Chocolate Pot has a slightly baluster shaped body which rises to an everted rim. The stepped cover terminates in a cast bell shaped finial and is decorated with reeded bands. The wicker bound scroll handle is attached to the main body with shaped mouldings. This piece has a cast "Sparrow Beak" spout, which is pierced with scroll work inside so that the sediment from the chocolate could be held back. Both the cover and underside are fully marked. The front of the main body is engraved with a cipher issuing from the Coronet of a Duke and the side with a contemporary Crest. The base is also engraved with the contemporary inscription, " A Token of Friendship from Philip Gilbert to Rich Jackson." The Pot is in excellent condition and is of a very good weight. Its unusual size dictates that it must have been used for travelling.

Height: 6 inches, 15cm.
Length, handle to spout: 6.5 inches, 16.25cm.
Weight: 18oz.
