Antique English Walnut Chippendale Tea Warmer ~ Jardiniere is a fascinating ode to a bygone era!  Lovingly hand-carved from luxurious walnut imported from France, it features a stylized relief carving on the sides as well as the boldly scrolled legs that displays an obvious Baroque style influence.  The removable brass insert was designed to hold hot coals inside upon which one would place a separator, usually a ceramic plate, then a teapot.  This would allow hosts and hostesses to keep the tea warm and in the very room in which they were entertaining, ready to serve!  Ideal as a centerpiece jardiniere, it could even serve double duty as a champagne bucket!
Circa early 1900s
