That is really nice. Love to find one someday.I use a French coffee. if you pour w/o opening the lid it stains out the grounds, Antique bought off ebay. You can sometimes find them on French ebay. Only other one I have seen is in a French-Canadian museum.
Someone once told me that you can tell a tea pot from a coffee pot by the position of the spout. Loose tea leaves float so the spout comes up from the bottom of the pot. Coffee grounds sink so the spout is shorter and start toward the top of the pot or is more of a pouring lip like yours. Not sure how true this is.
