Truly superb mahogany Chippendale Rococo kettle stand with piecrust top.
This antique stand has a fluted shaft carved urn and carved cabriole legs with ball & claw feet.
One of the very best kettle stands.
Note the use of a very similar kettle stand during tea service in a painting by Joesph Van Aken in 1725 (Tate Gallery - London)

(page 492 plate 3) - very similar (in the Victoria & Albert museum in London)
