Miscellaneous Vernon Kilns "spare parts":

We're always looking for spare parts for Vernon Kilns pieces, such as the following:

Stands

We're always looking for the black "wrought iron" warming stands with candles that were offered by Vernon Kilns in the 1950s.  These were called "Coffee Hots", "Casserole Hots" and "Casserole Round-ups".  Shown below are photos of a Tam O'Shanter coffee server and covered casserole standing in a "Coffee Hot" and a "Casserole Hot", respectively.

We are looking for these in any piece, i.e., water goblets and wine glasses (as shown below), iced tea tumblers, etc.  The important thing is to make sure to match the shape and stem details.
