Antique Silverplate Norddeutscher Lloyd Steamship Coffee Pot

Antique Silverplate Norddeutscher Lloyd Steamship Coffee Pot

$295.00

Found at market in the north of England, we are so pleased to offer this magnificent and very rare Antique Silverplate Coffee Pot from the ships of the mighty Norddeutscher Lloyd fleet. 

The Norddeutscher Lloyd shipping company was launched in 1857 by Eduard Crüsemann and Hermann Meier of Bremen in North Germany. (Norddeutscher is the German word for North German and in the mid-1800s, "Lloyd" was often used as a term for a shipping company). In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, it was one of the most important shipping companies of Germany with the city of Bremen and its harbour, Bremerhaven, the starting point of all the Norddeutscher Lloyd routes.

Expanding rapidly, by 1890 Norddeutscher Lloyd was second only to England's mighty P&O as the largest shipping company, but also had some of the fastest ships in the world. Offering both cargo and passenger service, the Norddeutscher Lloyd ships became famously popular as a means of immigration from Germany to the United States during the late 1800s, carrying more transatlantic passengers to New York than any other company.

From the majestic ships of the Norddeutscher Lloyd company, we are so pleased to present this fabulous Antique Silverplate Coffee Pot. Produced in Bremen by the venerable Wilkens silversmiths, this classic pot is lovely in every detail.  Both sides of the pot are chased and engraved with the lush Norddeutscher Lloyd crest featuring beautiful florals and cat tails surrounding the company's key and anchor logo.

This gleaming pot with its rich and storied provenance is a lasting reminder of an illustrious shipping company that brought passengers to all four corners of the globe and represented the glory years of ocean liner travel. 


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. Circa 1910. 6.5" x 6.75". In very good antique condition.

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.
