Coffee Pot - Brown Enamel Object Reg. No: SH 000851

Summary:
Enamel coffee pot, either brought to Australia by Vincenzo Candela and his wife Emanuela Nigro or purchased here, when they migrated in 1920.

Items that could not be purchased in Australia were often ordered by mail from the Italian manufacturer. This was a practice common in both Italy and Australia. Vincenzo also received catalogues from Italy after his migration to Australia.

Metal coffee pot, covered with a brown enamel. C shaped handle, S shaped spout with cork in opening, lid attached, button knob on top.
