The coffee pot is believed to be the rarest form of American Brilliant Period cut glass, and this highly sought-after example was almost certainly crafted by the Meriden Cut Glass Co. Masterfully cut in a pattern known as Florence, the central portion of the body is detailed with a large, deeply cut 10-pointed hobstar, while the handle and swan neck-like spout are adorned with elegant thumbprint notches. Considering many of these coffee pots frequently succumbed to broken spouts and missing covers, the fact that this specimen has survived in such remarkable condition is amazing.

A very similar coffee pot is featured in by J. Michael & Dorothy T. Pearson, 1965, page 160, plate 135.
