- Details: This is a beautiful coffee pot made by the fine English pottery masters of J&G Meakin. These two Meakin brothers made several different Colonial patterns: Colonial Brown, Colonial Flow Blue, Colonial Garden, Colonial Green and probably others. This coffee pot is in the Colonial Sterling pattern and probably the most versatile of all the Colonial patterns because, being all white, can be mixed with many different dinnerware sets. It has a simple embossed swirl design on the top rim and in the bottom third of the pot. The handle is just beautiful, also with swirls along the top and bottom. This piece is stamped on the bottom: “Sterling Colonial English Ironstone, J&G Meakin, England”. Our price already includes the ever increasing shipping fees, no surprises at check-out. Perfect for a J&G Meakin collector, beautiful to display!
