This is an circa 1880-1900 cast and wrought iron tea pot warmer and copper tea pot. A candle or a modern sterno canister keeps the water warm for making tea. Companies like Bradley and Hubbard and Guildcraft made these along with many other companies. If it is not a signed/makers stamped piece, it is worth $75.00, if it has the B & H triangle logo on it somewhere or B & H and a number, it is worth $200-$250.00.
