Perhaps Michael Graves' (1934-2015) most well-known design for Swid Powell, The Big Dripper (1986) is a 14 cup coffee pot born from Graves' preference for drip coffee and a lack of available drip coffee makers that met his aesthetic standards. This set includes the coffee pot, filter holder, sugar pot, and creamer in a high gloss white glaze with gold decoration and a brick red base. Examples of this stunning post modernism design can be found in the permanent collections of the Brooklyn Museum, Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the RISD Museum, and the Yale University Art Gallery,
