The sterling silver coffee pot was introduced during the 16th century alongside the introduction of coffee into Europe. Demand for coffee from a vessel that could be held and poured made way for initial early plain styles. The typical design was an expanded lower section with a similar spout design and a sharp pour so as to not allow the escape of coffee grinds. In the early 17th century filter techniques using linin cloth were used to hold the grinds while infusing the liquid. As coffee increased in popularity in the home, silver coffee pots evolved in style and elegance. Silver urns were also introduced as their larger size enabled social drinking in the expanding market.
