With this decorated porcelain coffee percolator, coffee could be served directly from an attractive jug. The percolator system brewed the coffee. The water is heated in the bottom, and pressure causes it to rise to the top of the jug and drip on the coffee filter. Then the coffee drips out of the bottom of the filter into the jug and can be poured.
