Coffeepot or Hot-Water Pot

Workshop of Paul de Lamerie (English (born Netherlands), 1688–1751)
Paul de Lamerie, a Huguenot who was living in London by 1700, was head of one of the most celebrated English silver workshops of the first half of the eighteenth century. His mark appears on silver ranging in style from simple unadorned pieces fashionable in the early decades of the century to examples like this pot in the most exuberant Rococo style. The coat of arms is that of the Gold family of Arlaston in Wiltshire, England, along with that of the Shaw family of Ardesly.
