Coffeepot Purchased by Andrew Jackson From Baron De Tuyll

This neoclassical silver coffeepot was made by French silversmith Jacques-Henri Fauconnier before 1833. It was part of a 130-piece silver service that President Andrew Jackson purchased from the Russian minister to the United States, Baron de Tuyll. The coffeepot features an ivory handle, cloven hooves for support, and a spout that resembles a dog's head.
