Water Meter Trivet
Available in a silver or copper finish, this replica of the classic New Orleans water meter cover is must have decor in any Crescent City home. It also makes a great gift for those who can’t get enough of New Orleans. The water meter covers date from the 1920s and were originally found all over the city, but due to thefts in recent years, plain metal covers are being used to replace the original pieces. NOLA artists have taken to reproducing the iconic symbol to encourage people to leave the real covers and take home the reproductions. The trivet comes with rubber stoppers so it can be used to hold hot plates in the kitchen, or it can be hung by the hooks found on the back as a decorative piece.
