Physical description

Tea infuser, part of a stand, plated metal. The infuser consists of a pierced metal globe on a cylindrical stem; both cut down the centre and open for use. These are held together by a sliding metal collar. The stand has the form of a shallow, circular dish with a narrow rim. It should have an attached metal rod device which forms a support for the handle of the infuser when it is not in use.
