As I recall, the VT52 stand is smaller than you'd expect because the pan holds only the main body of the display: the four feet (two at the back and two near the back edge of that mesh panel) drop into the pan at its four corners.  The keyboard section of the VT5x simply extends forward from the stand pan.

On the other hand, a VT100 needs a large pan because the keyboard is a separate part, and it too sits on the stand.  So I suspect the stand shown by BM is a VT100 stand, not a VT52 stand.
