Posset pot - (Silver Pewter Ceramics Pottery)

Posset-pot - (Silver, Pewter, Ceramics, Pottery) A candle cup, forerunner of the porringer, dating from the seventeenth century. The form is usually bell-shaped and nearly all posset-pots have (or had) a cover. Silver examples are the most esteemed, naturally, but they are very scarce and the collector is more likely to encounter specimens of pottery. See Porringer.
