Despite being pretty clean on the outside, the inside of this enamel coffee percolator gives away the fact that it’s seen some serious use over the years! The white enamel is stained yellow in places, and it’s lost its sheen so won’t be as easy to clean as it should be. There’s also a ding on the base, and the percolator basket is a bit wonky (although still functional). But it’s a beautiful piece of enamelware, and not something that you see everyday, so despite its many flaws I still think that it’s a great piece. It may not be right for your home (although I’d be more than happy to have it sitting on my stove-top), but it could make a very stylish camping coffee pot!

P.S. A similar enamel percolator is for sale online for $48 (R600)

Dimensions: 18cm tall x 13cm in diameter
