Brass cat


Title
Brass cat
Description
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.
