Antique Clyde Shipping Company Coffeepot

Antique Clyde Shipping Company Coffeepot

$595.00

Without a doubt, one of the most historic pieces of antique ocean liner silver we have ever found, the Antique Clyde Shipping Company Coffee Pot is a glorious treasure from one of the earliest steamship companies in the United Kingdom.

Established in 1815, the Clyde Shipping Company began with two paddle tug boats used to tow barges on the mighty River Clyde between Glasgow and Greenock, Scotland. From that humble beginning, the Clyde Shipping Company expanded over the next century to operate fleets throughout the United Kingdom and as far away as the Pacific Islands. After over a century and a half of sailing the high seas, the once-great Clyde Shipping Company eventually succumbed to financial pressures and shuttered in 1974.

From the historic Clyde Shipping Company of Glasgow, Scotland we are proud to offer this extremely rare, magnificent Antique Silverplate Coffeepot. Produced by Britain's great Elkington Silversmiths, the pot is stamped with the date code for its year of manufacture: 1894.  This glorious piece represents the apex of passenger amenities from the Golden Age of Travel. This one-of-a-kind Coffeepot is side-marked with Clyde Shipping Company's Victorian-era crest.  A gorgeous piece of historic oceanliner silver, this beautiful coffeepot is sure to be the centerpiece of your collection.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. 9 5/8" x 11".

Learn More about Hotel Silver

Once found in Grand Hotels, chic cafés, elegant restaurants as well as luxury steamships and the dining cars of the great locomotives, vintage hotel silver beautifully evokes the Golden Age of Travel. Enduringly crafted using sturdy nickel silver as its base metal and coated with a thick plating of pure, gleaming silver, vintage hotel silver is unmistakeable for its simple, classic lines and its pleasing heft. Often crested with the name of the establishment, the pieces bear the gentle, lovely patina often referred to as a “butler’s finish”.

Produced by the great silversmiths here in the United States, as well as those in Britain and on the Continent, most hotel silver dates from the 1920s to the 1940s. Prized for its perfect blend of form and function, hotel silver was made to withstand the rigors of daily use. Highly collectible, vintage hotel silver is a wonderful addition to any home.

Evoking the days of elegant travel, there are many new ways that hotel silver can be enjoyed. A milk pitcher or sugar basin makes an elegant vase for flowers or fresh herbs on the kitchen counter. A collection of oval platters adds sparkle and depth in a hutch when not being called into service for a buffet or dinner party. A toast rack becomes the perfect way to display photographs, hold fingertip towels in a powder room or organize mail in the office. Mix and match cutlery brings a relaxed sophistication and elegance to any tablescape. Whatever the piece, vintage hotel silver is sure to stir memories not only of your own travels, but of exotic destinations and ports of call from parts unknown.
