Authentic French Enamelware Biggin, or  Cafetiere {Coffeepot}, in Cream with floral decoration in rose, lavender, blue, yellow, red and green. Used on the daily in France for cafe au lait at breakfast, coffee at 11:00 before lunch, and again after dinner. This pot has history, French country charm, and spirit. Three part top with filter, damper and lid, this pot has the old "two handles" and split gooseneck spout indicative of the late 1800's, early 1900's. Referred to as a “Parisian” because of the longer filter portion with its own handle. Beautiful elongated form, this French coffee biggin is a wonderful addition to any vintage inspired décor.

There is the normal wear you would expect from an original piece with this age, the filter part shows rusting. This is an exceptionally rare large size, used in a cafe or hotel for serving many cups of coffee. Carefully kept by a collector, this is in good condition with the usual missing enamel and rusting in the filter. A stunning addition to your French Enamelware Collection, or the beginning of one, display this, use it for coffee, or create a stunning centerpiece by adding your favorite garden flowers.

  • Measures 6-1/2" in diameter with a 3" handle x 15-1/2"h.
