Imlay Chest with Stone top
In the Music Room at Winterthur Museum sits a diminutive early 19th-century teakettle stand. The marble top makes it ideal for holding a hot-water-filled urn or kettle for serving tea. Hickory Chair designers were inspired by the stand in the creation of a small chest with decorative knobs that are based on historic hardware in the museum collection. The knobs, also known as cloak pins, curtain pins, and cabinet handles, were made in England in the early 1800s and are decorated with a transfer-printed image of the Marquis de Lafayette. Henry Francis du Pont used the knobs for hanging fireplace equipment. The Imlay Chest requires a choice of 6289-11/71 wood top or 6289-80 stone top along with the base.
