    Well it is most likely over 100 making it an actual antique. Graniteware like this first appeared around 1885. Made until ? But pretty much out of style around the 1920s. Graniteware aka enamelware is porcelain coating which is basically a glass coating.

    What is interesting to me is the pattern. It seems to be like scales on a reptile, a series of rectangles. The usual pattern on graniteware is generally not something so identifiable as a pattern. The rust on the lid shows why the enamel coating was used. Plus it was easy to clean. Also easy to damage. Vintage graniteware/enamelware should always have a rust spot somewhere or as I say a beauty mark.

      Quite a pretty blue pattern. I like that good old fashioned percolator style, reminds me of my family's coffee pots back in the pre-drip days - coffee seemed to taste so much richer from them

      Was it used in a restaurant promising a "bottomless cup of coffee"? It appears to be bottomless.

      It’s not easy to find on of these with the guts. I promised myself last time a hurricane knocked out my power I’d have one of these before the next time, and I thought it’d be vintage. I thought wrong, it’s brand new from k-mart, still better than not having one at all.
      This ones much nicer looking!

      Thank you very much Newfld. I think the coffee is dumped in these and the strainer is by the nozzle.

      Thank you very much Karenoke. It is tough to find a useable one. I have been looking for a teapot or kettle but the rust tends to ruin the flavor. Plus the smell is a bit strong with no longer useable graniteware. I do have a couple I use for camping.
