This is a beautiful antique French enamel cafetière dating from the early 1900's. It is a very decorative and atmospheric piece and would add an authentic shabby chic touch to a vintage cuisine.
It is white with a lovely jade green to the edges. To each side of the cafetière is a beautiful flower and leaf vignette.
The cafetière is large and impressive. It has a long elegant spout and a sturdy handle. It has all 3 of it's original pieces. The lift lids off to reveal the ground coffee chamber. It has a perforated base through which the coffee percolates.When the coffee is ready the chamber can be removed and the lid placed on the base to form the coffee pot.
The cafetière is in good vintage condition, with just a little distressing to the enamel.
It measures :- 30 cm (11.75 inches) high x 14.5 cm (5.75 inches) across the bottom.
A fabulous vintage French cafetière to use and enjoy or perhaps add to a collection. It is from a carefully selected collection of gorgeous antique French textiles, accessories & decorative pieces at 'La Belle Étoffe'.
