This small sized colonial stand is made of padouk with the legs hinged to fold.

To fix them in place they have both an eyelet to receive a brass bar with a hook end and a swing hook to the outside of the top of the leg. The 4 brass bars are fixed on the diagonal to further strengthen the stand and the swing hooks are also used to lock the folded legs in place for travel. The top is slatted and there is a brass carrying handle for when it is folded. This stand is a small size and it's possible that it was also conceived as a stool. It's a well considered piece and the padouk a good colour. Mid 19th Century.
