Like the plate warmer, this tripod or "brass cat" used fireplace heat to keep things warm. Three bottom legs help it stand upright. Supposedly, it's called a brass cat because it always lands on its feet. The top extensions hold plates or a kettle close to the fire. Date approximated. The accompanying video describes the item in more detail.
