I recently purchased this unique pot at a flea market in Louisiana, and know nothing about it other than I liked it. All of the hardware is with it and also the makers mark. More photos available.
Any information would be helpful.

Thank you

Post the pictures and we'll try our best to help you with any questions.

 
Did you know...? Dark roast coffees actually have less caffeine than lighter roasts due to the fact that the process of roasting burns off caffeine.

Interesting, how did you manage to quote yourself on your first post?

Aside from that interesting point, a picture is worth MORE than a thousand words, esp here where we have many different brew methods, many different makers and equipment going back over 100 years, that is a lot of ground to cover so a pic goes a very long way in helping us help you.

Hi Wayne P.
Thank you for your response, and to be honest, I have NO idea how I quoted myself on my first post! That was my first post on this site I think, and for sure trying to get myself around here. I still have no luck uploading my photos. I have tried cropping them, to make them smaller, but it is still saying my files are to large.
I am not for sure if you are the same man, but I did send 3 photos to the email that was available. It was a gmail account.
Sorry for any confusions, but I am trying. If you have any suggestions on how I may get them to you, I would appreciate them.

My real life name is Gay

Thank you

It's certainly possible to quote yourself if you want to.

It's a more elaborate version of a traditional Napoletana.  If you take it apart, you should find a perforated filter device fits between the 2 halves.  Fill that with coffee (it probably needs to be a fairly coarse grind). Fill the part without the spout with water (hot water will make it a quicker process) then fit the 2 halves together. Place the contraption back in the frame as in your picture - but with the part holding the water at the bottom (pretty obvious I guess ;o)

Light the spirit heater (filled with denatured alcohol, or whatever the equivalent is called in your part of the world), and wait until the water is almost boiling.  Some have a small hole so you see the steam start, otherwise it's down to intuition.  Then twist the thing over so the water drips through the filter into the spout section.  I don't know if there some sort of catch to hold it in that position while it drips through ?

You might find the coffee it makes a bit hit and miss, but in principle it is a drip device with a fairly coarse filter.  Conventional Napoletanas are aluminium stovetop versions. They aren't really up to making the standard of coffee most on here would demand, but they are a nice traditional approach to brewing.

This is info i recieved on my pot yesterday from and antique dealer/expert.
Thank you for your response. I'm excited about my find. My pot is in excellent condition. Does not look as though it has ever Been used.

I googled "brass fouled anchor LC" and many items came up. Apparently it is brass, hence the green verdigris on the bottom. It's French 1800s.  One on eBay sold for Best Offer; asking was $225. USD.
Don't clean it unless you're going to keep it. The verdigris comes with age.  Nice find, especially since it's all complete.
