Coffee maker, tin, a 'flip' coffee pot, or 'Napolitana', with double chamber comprising a separate boiler and coffee-pot, both with black plastic handles. The boiler, with no spout, holds the coffee lidded filter with pierced lid and pierced compartment inside. The coffee pot sits on top of the boiler, placed upside down: when the water has boiled the whole coffee maker is 'flipped' upside down to allow the water to filter through the grounds into the coffee pot. Once the coffee is ready, the boiler with filter is removed leaving the full coffee pot, which has a separate lid. The handles of both pots riveted at top and bottom.
