    description
    This excellent porcelain veilleuse is crafted in the form of an orange brick Gothic church, with hand-painted scenes, and is comprised of 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 vase. 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.

    Circa 1890
