This French porcelain veilleuse comprises a demitasse teapot on a warming stand, inside which a small candle or oil is lit inside, keeping the tea in the pot warm, and a demitasse teacup which is stored in the base. Veilleuses were usually intended for use on the bedside table, and thus acted as a night light or bedside lamp as the candle inside burned down.
