Add to album

This silver coffee-pot and stand was made in 1900-1 by Hamilton & Inches of Edinburgh. When in use, the coffee-pot is placed on top of the three-legged stand while the lamp sits underneath to heat the coffee.

The coffee pot has a cylindrical body, pedestal foot and shallow domed lid. The stand consists of a reeded circle of silver supported on three reeded legs with feet. The lamp has a lid with a small tube through the centre for the wick.

Hamilton & Inches was founded by James Hamilton and his nephew Robert Kirk Inches. Their first shop was at 90A Princes Street and was primarily a retailing establishment. Robert Inches became an important public figure, and was clockmaker to the King.
