I love everything about this Kathie Winkle coffee pot designed for James Broadhurst & Sons in 1971. I love the fact that it’s in such great nick, that the colours are still so bright, including the white porcelain body of the coffee pot, and of course I love that fabulous 70’s Roulette pattern! So, so cool! I even love the maker’s stamp – I think I’ve mentioned this before – the Kathie Winkle backstamp is super attractive! The only issue, and it’s a minor one, is that the lid is ever so slightly wobbly. It’s definitely the original lid, but it doesn’t fit the coffee pot perfectly. There’s no risk of it falling off (fortunately it’s a nice deep lid), but it does wobble a wee bit…..

P.S. As much as I love this coffee pot, there’s another dealer who thinks even more of it than I do – someone is selling this exact coffee pot on eBay for nearly R2000 – but I have to say that they’re probably short a few marbles!

Dimensions: 22cm tall x 13cm in diameter

Price: R220
