Rare vintage copper classic Universal coffee maker percolator, circa 1940-1950, 8-cup coffee pot with good working cord and in terrific working condition! This percolator was made by Universal Landers Frary & Co., New Britain, Conn., U.S.A. This is called the Coffeematic and has settings for brewing either a strong or mild cup of coffee. It operates on 600W and 110-120V of power. It is Universal No. 4411. This percolator is in excellent condition for its age and has been polished to a shiny brightness, has no dings or dents, and is clean on the inside with some minor coffee stains not bad. This coffee pot is so pretty and elegant that it would make a wonderful serving piece for your table and would also look wonderful on a serving tray with your favorite coffee cups. This rare coffee percolator would be great in a retro kitchen or copper accented kitchen. The coffee maker comes with all of its internal parts including the stem and strainer basket (one piece) and strainer lid. The pot measures approximately 11" tall and 10" wide from the bakelite handle to the pour spout. I tested this pot out and it works perfectly. T is a glass knob at the top of the percolator that has the added benefit of being able to see your coffee brewing. T is also a working indicator light on the front of the pot that lets you know when brewing is finished. They don't make coffee percolators like this anymore! I have yet to plug in an old appliance that didn't work as well as the day it was manufactured and this is one of them. This old workhorse will surely last many more years to come. Don't hesitate and bid with confidence! This one won't last long! Email me with your zip code if you think I can do better on shipping.
