The coffee pot was first commissioned by Peter Payne in 1953 but it wasn't until 1955 that the first one was made by Wakely & Wheeler. Earl Atlee received one when he was given the Freedom of the City of Oxford, the Goldsmiths' Company have one in their modern collection and the Clerk, Graham Hughes, bought a jug for himself.

Silver Dish

Sheffield 1965
Frank Cobbe

I have listed this under Clements as the shape is very reminiscent of some of his designs. He was head designer at Mappin and Webb at this time and did design some bonbon dishes for them although Eric tells me that this was not one of his. They were made in two sizes by Frank Cobb in Sheffield and can be found with either his own mark or M & W
Length: 16cm
