    This Gibsons England Coffee/Serving Pot was todays 01/10/2019 Thrift Store Find, and I thought that I could show these Cincinnatus Quadruple Queen CY. Sil. Co. Creamer and Sugar, that I got a couple of months ago, with the Pot. I couldn't find much information on the Gibson and Sons England Coffee/Serving Pot that I got, but the Company Gibson & Sons(Ltd) was Manufactures of Earthenware Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent, from 1885-mid1970's, I found a Site, that has bottom marks, and Dates used, but I couldn't find a Pattern like mine or when it was made, but it's in like-new condition, and a beautiful Pot! The impressed Gibsons England mark was first used in 1910, and I saw a Pot with a shape like mine that said it was from the 1950's, so for a Coffee/Serving Pot that's at least 60+ years, a great find I think! :^D Here's the Company information site, I'll post it in comments so you can check it out if you want easier:
    http://www.thepotteries.org/mark/g/gibson.html
    The Pot is 7" tall, to the rim, and 5" at the widest, it's 9" from the tip of the spot to the back of the handle, and it has a 3" opening!

    The Cincinnatus Queen City Silver Co. operated from 1888-1949, and I think that this Creamer, and Sugar was made around 1910, both are in very good condition, with a little plating loss on the inside of the Creamer only. I think this is a Morning Glory Flower pattern.
    The Creamer is 3 1/4"high to the lip of the spout, 2 3/4" across the base, and 4 5/8" from lip to back of handle. It's numbered 6657
    The Sugar is 2 1/2"high to top of handle, 5" across the handles, and about 3" across the top sides, and base. It's numbered 6657

    Thank you for looking, all comments are welcome, and any information would be great! :^)

      Thanks Jenni, it's hard for me to pass up a beautiful piece of pottery like this Coffee Pot, even though the resale value isn't there, like 70% of all the Treasures that I Collected over the past 50years or so. Like the Creamer and Sugar, they don't get much nicer looking, as far as I'm concerned, but only collectors of these want them anymore, sad! :^)
