An exceptional Chippendale period mahogany kettle stand of diminutive proportions. The square top with slight all round up-stand over a frieze incorporating a mahogany slide, supported by classical Chippendale square tapering legs, with carved mahogany ears underneath the frieze, terminating in moulded block feet.

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.
