This piece creates a nostalgic feeling of the old days.,It is a small coffee pot, only 8″ tall. The gray granite glaze is on the outside and,inside, across the bottom, and on the handle. The hinged lid, however, remains the ,old steel metal, which gives this pot real charm. ,There is no basket on the inside. ,This pot is from the days when coffee grounds were dumped into the bottom of the ,pot and boiled in water until the brew was ready to drink.
