Breakfast in bed anyone!!? Serve your morning coffee with class in this circa 1960s silverplate coffee service. This is Colonial Classic pattern 100-E by Lunt Silversmiths. It is very similar to their Paul Revere pattern and sometimes confused. And rightly so as I believe about the only difference is the knob on the lids. Each piece of this fluted set is engraved with a lovely lattice floral design which is a fine example of early American silver of the Federal period and was modeled after a teapot fabricated by Paul Revere for Jonathan Hunnewell in 1796 which is now in the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. The handle of the coffee pot and the umbrella shaped knobs are made of some type of molded dense black plastic. The creamer and sugar bowl have gilt interiors and the lid is hinged on the coffee server.
Lunt Silversmiths began as Rogers, Lunt and Bowlen in 1902 when employee and engraver, George C. Lunt, purchased A. G. Towle & Son company. The name was changed to Lunt Silversmiths in 1935 and in late 2009 its name and inventory was sold to Reed & Barton. As an example of proof of their fine work, their Embassy Scroll pattern was chosen by the US government as its official tableware in all US embassies and consulates around the world.
