    Can you identify this moka pot?

    Picked up this Moka pot and it has no manufacturer's identification on it, other than "made in Italy' Can you identify it, and perhaps come up with a time frame?

    It looks like a stovetop milk steamer.

    Does it have a basket inside? If it does, it can be used for brewing coffee. That would be a coffee wand too.
    I have seen some moka pots with 2 wands. One for frothing and the other to dispense the coffee.
    Yours could certainly froth milk too. I am with you Topher, pressure under high heat, I will step back!

    It is definitely an espresso maker. A friend of mine in Italy told me it looks like a Neopolitan moka pot and his mother says it is probably circa 1940s.
    It does have a basket and steam valve. I tried it out the other night but the gasket is too warn to create pressure. I only paid $5 US at a local thrift store
