Gift of the Eloise Kruger Charitable Trust

Eloise Kruger commissioned this kettle stand, or urn stand, from Eric Pearson based on a clipping she sent him of an Irish urn stand.

The table is large enough to hold little more than a hot kettle, keeping it safely off other surfaces as tea is served. Most kettle stands contained a pull out slide such as this one, which could be used to place your cup as the hot tea is poured.
