Tea kettle stands of this form can be found in William Ince and John Mayhew’s Univeral System, 1759-1763, plate XIV. These stands effectively protected the flame from the draught and were usually lined with metal.
See P Macquoid, The Age of Mahogany, figure 663, which illustrates a kettle stand from the Percy Dean Collection, (subsequently sold Sotheby’s, 5th May 1989, lot 59), which is of similar form and “has an opening for the spout of the kettle and a slide beneath, from its large size, this piece was most likely used in connection with hot drinks, such as punch, bishop, negus and other such beverages conductive to the gout of Georgian times”.
