English creamware pierced brazier used to keep a pot of hot water warm at the tea table; the bowl-shaped stand held a spirit burner in its base (now missing on this example); and the top scrolls extending from the bowl and the interior projections supported a kettle filled with hot water. This brazier has three scrolls and three interior foliate projections attached to the wide lip; two attached double entwinted rope handles with briar terminals above and flower and leaves terminals below; a band of openwork design with a line of scrolling holes runiing around panels of pierced hearts and diamonds around the sides; and is supported on three molded lion mask and paw feet. There is a similar brazier in the Temple Newsan House collection, which Walton attributes to the Leeds Pottery based on the 'classic' Leeds terminals on the handles.
