As I collected Cook & Serve coffee cans I thought I should collect coffee pots to go with them. Since recently acquiring the Narvik Green pot I now have 6 different patterns or colours. I'm sure there's others and wish I had them. Saddest omission is a coffee pot in Fleurette, that I was out-bid on on trademe many years back, not just a loss for its rarity, but because I have cans to go with it, and a whole dinner set too.

The existence of a pot with a Blue Tango lid suggests the possibility that other hand-painted cans also had matching coffee pot designs. While there are Sunburst and Narvik pots I have never seen Sunburst or Narvik Cook & Serve cans or saucers.

Some Cook & Serve items have round knobs. The knobs are square on all these coffee pots.

Top Row: Narvik Green, Sunburst 495, Blue Tango
Bottom Row: Tango Blue, Black, Mustard Yellow

Each of the patterned pots is coloured in a different way.
The Narvik has a white lid with green-detailed knob and green-glazed jug with screen-printed Narvik design.
The Sunburst has a brown-glazed lid and a white jug with a (seemingly) hand-painted pattern under clear glaze.
The Blue Tango has the Tango pattern painted radially on a white lid and the knob is detailed blue on top, but the jug has a standard Tango Blue glaze.

The Narvik is the only pot with its own name on the backstamp. The pot with the Blue Tango lid has the ordinary Cook & Serve back stamp. (I have three so I can be pretty sure.)

Catchup.
I have recently seen other Cook & Serve in Narvik Green. Separate pattern number from Narvik, and green only. 863/739 duos.
I have seen Sunburst trios in earthenware at Deco2Retro: 3012 (but also 3019, both in dark brown)/805 (Sunburst)/? (DB)

Hi Jeremy I picked up a mustard/kakkie cook and serve coffee pot today and wondered if it was made to go with Image or some other pattern?

Ev,
Image is the obvious choice to go with the yellow pot but consider that Athens, Tacoma, and Bermuda (and even Saraband) can all sit on yellow saucers so they will also have a colour match with it.

I made a picture of the blue pot with the numerous colour matches.
It'll give you an idea.

Thanks so much as now I see what you mean Jeremy.
I wouldn't call the colour yellow, but it certainly would go with a few of those cups.

I forgot to mention that the Opshop lady called the Cook & Serve backstamp a 'Designer Label' and that's why it was so expensive at $15 :O2laugh:

Jeremy put that info on the Cook and Serve topic that has over 10,000 views. Some can have a selection. I don't know how to add a link from my phone.

I was surprised to find that the coffee pot and the Image saucer are more than slightly different colours ..

Val,
Simplest thing is to match with a colour in the cup design.

As said above, Tacoma, Athens and Bermuda can match with blue, yellow or black.
Saraband looks best on a black but yellow at a stretch.

Handpainted cups have matched saucers with names in green.

Only trick so far is Napoli, which I have on brown but which has sold as a set on tm on green.

If all else fails black works.

I'm still working through the plain coloured cans. Blue and the Cook & Serve yellow (and brown) can have matching saucers but I have yet to see black cans or white saucers. I can't remember off hand what colours of saucer may be marked "Viking" beyond the black.

Colour matches may not be perfect as you can see in the blue photo above, and also as Ev has found with saucer and coffee pot. That is curious and to be honest I've never paid the attention to it that I have to the blue. Cook & Serve duos, Cook & Serve coffee pots, they've got to go together.

Yes, there are other pots in different shapes too, but in earthenware not vit:
Tacoma (seen tm) and Bermuda (Auckland Museum). And we have seen no cups yet to match the Green Narvik pots (which, if they exist must surey be vit), or vitrified duos in Sunburst.
