Ambrosia, I'm guessing this auction is yours:

Have a look at the coffee pot, behind the Mogambo Cook & Serve can and saucer and the coffee jar in the Gregg's coffee ad:

There is another on the table too.

I looked at a few on eBay and see they come in a lot of shape variations. Yours appears to be a match for the Gregg's one, the top part at least.

Why they put a perc in an ad for instant I do not know: maybe they are using it as a jug/carafe.

Just what a collector of Mogambo needs I guess!

Oh that is neat, thanks for pointing that out. Yes it's mine, we're building a new house and since my better half is quitting smoking to save $$ I agreed to sell some of my hoard :-)
I've only ever seen one other one.
