This silver coffee pot created by leading English silversmith, Hester Bateman, exhibits the finest in Georgian craftsmanship. Its classically curved form features a scrolling wood handle and a spout chased with acanthus leaves. Bateman's signature beaded trim graces the pot's base and hinged lid, while each side of the body is heavily adorned with bright-cut engravings of a shield, floral swags and garlands. 

Hester Bateman was truly a pioneer in the history of silversmithing, both as a successful businesswoman in a male-dominated craft and for transforming the design of silver. Choosing neoclassical forms that emphasized the importance of line rather than the highly ornamental designs of the rococo style, Bateman's pieces exude simplicity and elegance. The combination of her business savvy and gift as a skilled artisan made her one of the most famed of all the Georgian silversmiths, and the most important and celebrated female silversmith of all time.
