Chocolate Pot
Joseph-Théodore Van Cauwenbergh (French, born ca.1723, master 1770)
Chocolate Pot
English: Pots made to serve hot chocolate rather than coffee may be distinguished by a small hole in the lid covered by a sliding or detachable finial. When this hole is uncovered, a swizzle stick can be inserted to stir the hot chocolate and to remove the foam. This pot illustrates the restrained version of the rococo style that remained fashionable in Paris into the late 1770s.
