An early Gothic revival royal coffee pot by Thomas Wimbush

Price: Sold

An exceptional early Gothic revival silver gilt coffee pot by Thomas Wimbush for George IV, carrying his royal coat of arms.  The handle formed from a dragon. Thomas Wimbush is a rarely seen maker who carried the royal warrant and invariably makes exceptional pieces. This design carries some similarities to an 1827 coffee pot designed by a young Augustus Pugin for Rundell and Bridge, that design held by the V & A and thought not to have been made.

Sold through Sotheby’s May, 2018. Discovered by the Peartree Collection.
