The urn stand was used for holding the tea kettle, back in times when tea was an expensive and rare commodity, the tea would be mixed into a pot which was placed on the slide, hot water from the kettle would be poured into the pot by means of a tap fitted at the bottom of the kettle (sometimes called the urn).
These days the stand would be used either as a decorative plant or lamp stand, they are generally rare and also very desirable.
