These stands are relatively small in size and would have been designed to match with ladies chairs. They are finely crafted and rare in style.
Below the drawer there is a geometric spiral motif, which symbolizes long life. The wave motif appears on the sides of the middle tray and the spandrels below. It is a symbol for abundance and prosperity.
The deep drawer and bordered middle shelf provide convenient and secure storage for tea serving instruments and treats.
