Serving both a practical and an aesthetic purpose, silver teapot stands became an integral part of the tea drinking custom toward the latter half of the 18th Century. They were rarely made as single items as they were usually manufactured for a particular teapot, however over the years since they were produced they often become split from the associated pot, and can now be bought as individual pieces. 18th century examples in good condition are highly sought after.
