Chocolate Pot and warmer, The Young Moor's Head Factory, 1761-69. Tin-enameled earthenware.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Perhaps each morning you would like to be served chocolate in bed, you know, just to get you a bit energized for the day or at least for your toilette. This pot is made of clay, fired then glazed with a special glaze that would conceal any clay-colored flaws. The result is a perfect piece, hand painted with a floral and feathery motif. The colors are soft and would surely brighten any morning. Would you select this piece for your château?
