A chic chocolatière.

Here’s a little history lesson for ya: We might think of hot cocoa as a treat for chilly evenings and ski trips, but for centuries—from the Aztecs to the French—drinking chocolate was pretty much the only way anyone consumed it at all. Europeans made it in little pots like this one, called a chocolatière, which had a hinged lid to make it easier to stir (neat, huh?). This lovely piece was made around 1850 and still has its original wooden handle. Oh, and here’s another fun tidbit: The copper cools quickly when removed from heat, meaning you’re less likely to scorch delicate liquids inside. Give it a go when making hot chocolate, ghee coffee...or any warm drink, really.
