This is a Coffee Set.
This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from Collection of John C. Waddell as part of The Jazz Age: American Style in the 1920s.
While the aesthetic of this hand-wrought pewter coffee set, probably designed by Kem Weber around 1928–29, is different from his candelabra, both were made by Porter Blanchard, with whom Weber worked. The reeding suggests the form of the wood elements in Weber’s sideboard and chair.
