1937 and Manning Bowman in Meridian Connecticut was making heavy duty well made appliances which also had very nice styling. This model 391 pot is one of them. It has a couple issues that do not affect its usefulness or function. The interior nickel plating got scrubbed with metal by a former owner so the copper shows, which does not affect its use at all. It will make fresh wonderful perked coffee like it was made to do. It does not have a thermostat so you unplug it when you want to stop the percolation. The handle is walnut and the design they used for the pot combined with the handle make this an ideal example of art-deco from the period. The round perk top is really cool. It is copper construction with nickel and chrome plating. The pump, stem and basket parts are aluminum. At only 350 watts it perks really well at such a low wattage. It has a fuse in case you do something that might allow it to heat too much, but there is also a spare fuse with instructions (its easy) to change it.
I have cleaned it up, re-did the wiring to make sure it is safe and working well. 350 watts, comes with period cord (checked for safe usage) and all instructions to keep it in good shape and make good coffee.
9 1/2 inches tall, 10 inches spout to handle, 6 inches at widest and 4 inches diameter at base. Chromed copper construction, and aluminum stem, basket and spreader.

If something goes wrong, I will fix it so its like a lifetime (mine LOL) warranty.
It will be as safe or safer than the original manufacturer when it was made. Many times it is safer since I remove and replace asbestos wiring and unsafe cords. Note: There are some items I no longer refurbish because they cannot be made safe. I check every item for stray voltage and many times it is too high so that unit is scrapped.
It means its been re-wired with modern high heat resistant wire, thermostats re-set, gunk, grease, stains have been removed. Restored to original factory specifications. Cords and wiring safe. All components checked for safety. Everything back to very good to mint condition nothing less.
