QYT coffee pot and hot water jug

Exceptionally rare pieces from my collection include this black panther coffee pot and hot water jug painted with an Alfred Read design. The designs date from 1954 and this particular one is QYT. The production lifespan was short and popularity limited, hence their relative scarceness.

The bold colours work well on the matt black background. I also have a sugar bowl painted with TQU design and a coffee cup and saucer in QYT.

  1. Hi Justin, Great to see pieces I've never seen before. I love the two coffee/water pots here. I got all excited when I got a pair of black pebble streamline coffee pots recently, but they pale a bit compaired to these. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your collection. Best wishes, Rob
