The coffee pot has a lighthouse shape with embossed decoration that encircles the bottom area of the pot. The design is very detailed and features a courting couple embossed in high relief with a dog on one side and a scenic landscape with a village in the background.The pot has a sculpted wooden handle and embossed work around the dome shaped lid. The long slender spout has a curved, fluted shape with scalloped base that attaches to the pot. There is also a fancy embossed crest-shaped medallion on one side with "Ostendo non Ostento" (Latin with English translation - "What you see is what you get") engraved on a banner above the head of a peacock.
The lid has a tight hinge and opens and closed properly. Edwards trained under his father and was known for the quality workmanship of his silver pieces. The coffee pot is in excellent Estate condition with no noted flaws and reflects only minor signs of normal wear commensurate with age. There is some faint shadowing on the polished areas of the silver, however, we have elected not to harshly polish the pot in order to leave the naturally aged patina.There is also a faint gap at the base of the wood where it is attached to the base of the silver handle that may have originally had a "natural" spacer that has deteriorated over the years. This gap is very narrow and is hardly noticed but is mentioned for accuracy. The soldering is also visible on the inside where the body of the pot was attached to the base, however, the pot was made this way, and this is not a later repair.
