Roccoco Silver Coffee Pot

The Roccoco art movement began after the reign of King Louis XIV and was the last progression in the baroque period. Originating in France the movement quickly spread across Europe as artists developed a more asymmetrical and fluid approach.

This coffee pot was made in London in 1765, the very end of the Roccoco period, and would make for a memorable Father’s Day gift. Hallmarked TW the pot is finished with a baluster swirl decoration. It is on display in our first-floor silver gallery on Collins Street.
