March2nd2011Hello, This English 18th century Georgian mahogany urn stand is a rare find. With a tray top to keep spills from the floor, three short drawers below hold spoons and tea strainers. Urn and kettle stands are usually low in height however, this model allows adjustment with a thumbscrew mounted on a sturdy ring collar, all in brass in a bronze tone. The pedestal is an urn form above molded and scrolled legs with scroll terminals. Further, the base is collared with a conforming brass strap to resolve typical shrinkage problems on the stem. The stand is in old finish with later layers of polish. Repairs are minimal and there is appropriate evidence of wear overall. The top is 10 5/8” X  10 3/8”. Height at lowest 23” and highest 30”.

May I answer further questions or provide more detailed images?

Best regards and thanks

-Bob
