Making Manning, Bowman My Mistake
|Manning, Bowman & Co. coffee pot|
Just looking at makes me happy (which I know is sick and wrong). I always figured it was a samovar and promptly put it on top of the china cabinet for decoration.
A couple years go by and then my best friend calls and says she was at a party and the hostess had one exactly like mine and did I know it was a coffee percolator? Uh, no.
I was so busy admiring the front that I didn't examine it closely or do any research!
I found a few examples of this Manning, Bowman & Co. chrome and Bakelite beauty. Now I'm on the hunt for a replacement cord. Luckily, this mistake tickled me - not usually the case!
