Coffee pot 1017 is part of the Henning Koppel tea and coffee set from 1952.
The Teapot 1017 was awarded the Gold Medal at the Triennial di Milano in 1954.

Guaiacum is a very hard type of wood, which is needed due to the large size and special shape of the handles. Each handle is made especially for the individual pot and creamer. The socket (the small piece where the handle is attached) may vary slightly from pot to pot - it may be only a 1/10 of a millimetre – but still each handle must be fitted specifically for the individual pot.

The fitting of the hinge for the lid on the coffee and tea pot is a very time consuming process for the silversmith. The transition from the handle to the lid has to be perfectly smooth, simultaneously the lid must open and close smoothly – not too tight and not too loose!
