Art Deco, Walter von Nessen "Coronet Pattern" Coffee Urn, Chase Brass & Copper Co. Percolator


This is a beautiful, Art Deco, Coffee Maker. Designed by Walter von Nessen, this "Coronet Pattern", Coffee Urn / percolator was manufactured by the Chase Brass & Copper Co. in 1938. The Brooklyn Museum has several pieces designed by Walter von Nessen in their American Art Gallery exhibit, The City and The Rise of the Modern Woman, 1900-1945.

The curvy, round, chromed, metal body sits on a fluted, chrome, cylinder on a Bakelite base. Two, curved, ribbed side handles and half moon shaped spigot are also made of Bakelite. A clear, glass knob on the lid to allows the coffee brewing process to be visualized.

Original percolator basket and cord are included.

Measures approximately 10-1/4" wide from handle to handle x 10" wide front to back, x 12" tall to the top of the percolating knob.

Coffee maker is in very good condition with some minimal wear noted consistent with age and mild use. The cord is original and is in very good condition, with no fraying, tears or deterioration to the outer casing. No cracks or breaks noted to the handles, spigot or base. No scratches, dents, dings or loss of chrome noted to the metal pieces.

We did test the machine with water and it worked perfectly, running through the percolator basket and heating the water. Please see above video for more detail.

We did perform a light cleaning, however, did not want to compromise the integrity of the coffee maker in any way. A more thorough cleaning would perfect this already magnificent machine!
