The chocolate pot is likely an antique. It is my mother’s but she doesn’t remember how old it is or where it came from. The gold trim is a little worn in a couple of spots otherwise it is in near perfect condition and is beautiful.
I am sure someone will correct me if I got this wrong but it looks like the work is done on the dome of the Minnesota state capitol building. I don’t see any scaffold and it sure looks nice. When it is safe to go outside again without freezing I am going to get some more pictures.
