GOOD GEORGE II / III MAHOGANY GALLERIED KETTLE (WINE) STAND
Of well figured timbers retaining the original surfaces,
the octagonal top with its original plain gallery above a tapering and ring-turned standard with urn knop,
raised on three cabriole legs terminating in pad feet
Kettle stands were introduced in the early 18th century to accommodate silver tea kettles on their silver stands.
They were used in the tripod form until the early George III period.
Thereafter kettle (or urn) stands with four legs were more usual.
Small tripod stands have become increasingly difficult to find with original surfaces and in good condition,
particularly one with its original gallery.
Condition : Excellent, with rich color and patination; no breaks or restoration observed.
23" High x 12" Diameter
