18th century english infusion pot

i am pleased to offer this unmarked but nicely made 'u' shaped infusion pot.  it is from the second half of the eighteenth century and probably london made.  these would have a flexible breathing tube attached to the nozzle.  the lid pocket would be filled with an aromatic substance and the bottom would hold hot water.  breathing the vapors helps people inflicted with lung problems.  the piece is in very good condition.

price $190
