No pictures handy but I have the shorter "Revere copper bottomed" brother of yours. It is the lower portion of yours with a percolator "stem" and basket inside with a domed top with a center glass knob so you can see how strong the brew is getting to know when to pull it off the heat.

My GF found this at the local Goodwill. It's in excellent shape and makes good coffee. We use it every weekend. The patents on the bottom cover are all from the early 1920's.

I like percolated coffee. On my second in the space of three years. New ones are junk. Looking for a vintage percolator that the owner doesn't think it's made of platinum.

I enjoy coffee made in either of the Revere Ware Copper Clad pots, the drip is my favorite because I can steam the grounds and make replica world war two Navy coffee.


Best wishes: Mike

Well you are showing so I don't have to. But from the handles mine may be older,they have a "deco" look to them.

I was in Peerless Coffee in Oakland this morning and thought of this thread when I saw their old skool display.
