A wonderful Antique English Silver 4 Piece Tea and Coffee Set. Included in this very elegant set is the tea kettle and stand which is a nice feature to have. Tea Kettles were given their name due to the fact that they had a burner which contained spirits. These spirits would help form a flame under the kettle, keeping the device warm. As tea became so popular throughout Europe, the tea kettle was the natural outcome of the teapot. In general, tea kettles and stands are usually set on three or four legs. A tea kettle and stand would usually be brought out during formal dinner parties, providing a definite display of wealth and spectacle.
