ANTIQUE CHOCOLATE POT FINDS A HOME

Isn't it fun to find a treasure on an antiquing venture......




This Chocolate Set was made in Germany:







Recently we set out for some of our favorite antiquing spots in Denver, Colorado and were thrilled to find that the huge mall on Broadway was having a sale.....






As many of you already know, the spout is what attributes this piece as a Chocolate Pot and not a coffee or teapot.....by the way, the vendor called it a "coffee" which often is a common mistake.








There were 3 demi sized cups and saucers - probably the 4th was broken! 




When I purchase new "old" items I am thrilled....so much more interesting!


I am linking this post today to: Kathy at A Delightsome Life and also  Sandi at    Rose Chintz Cottage

Hello Bernideen
The chocolate pot and cups were a great find, and pretty too!
Now I know it is the spout that determines the purpose.

It's a very pretty chocolate pot! It looks so Victorian and I can imagine ladies sipping hot chocolate from those cups!
