Circa 1904 Stoneware Coffee pot from the C.F. Blanke Coffee and Spice Company, originally based in Saint Louis, MO, but eventually in many markets in the Middle of the United States. While some Blanke coffee pots are commonly found advertising the Faust Brand of coffee, this particular one is very rare, and was probably used during the 1904 Worlds Fair in St. Louis as the Blanke company sponsored an asian garden, and this is the only item I have ever seen with the asian theme to it. I suspect this might have been used during the fair in the pavilion. i am aware of two of these pitchers to date.
