Pour no more

Pour no more

This old corroded tea kettle has sat on a rusted cast iron wood stove in the yard of El Dorado County Historical Museum in Placerville, California for years. Though I've taken many photographs of water reservoir, this is one of the first that satisfies my inner artist. I can imagine many cups of beautifully brewed tea and coffee were poured from this spout.

The kettle, stove and many other objects (some in good condition, many others not and all of it old!) go on sale at the museum this spring. Watch the county purchasing website for the invitation to bid. It should be posted within the month.
