A small égoïste silver coffee pot, made in Rennes between 1766 and 1769. On three lion legs, this pear-shaped pot with a straight handle is closed by a lid topped by a spiral. Placed under the pot, the marks match with the silversmith Jean Loison (1713-1785), received in 1744, and with Rennes "jurande" for the period 1766-1769, a crowned O with an ermine in the center.
Coats of arms were engraved on the body and are partially still legible. On the right, we can decipher those of the family Mol, in the Finistère, Brittany. The ones on the left ore more erased.
