This is a fabulous and rare Antique (early Victorian) English Cranberry Glass Epergne Centerpiece! An Epergne is an ornamental, luxurious centerpiece for a dining table typically used for holding fruit or flowers. I brought this cherished Epergne with me from England, it has belonged to me for approximately 20 years. This precious and delicate piece has been meticulously and lovingly cared for and has traveled to both the USA and now Canada, despite this it remains fully intact to this day but it is now time to release it for loving care by another. The Epergne is expertly designed and very finely detailed. The piece is crafted of cranberry glass and features a center bowl with a ruffled edge, with a center decorated holder piece which supports the upper part of the Epergne. The piece features four floral (also with ruffled edges) “trumpets”, a larger screwed center one and three smaller ones to the side. Each trumpet features applied swirled decoration with a clear bottom stem and a lighter upper section. The Epergne is a very delicate object and looks stunning adorning a dining table or sideboard enhanced with beautiful cut flowers! The Epergne is in excellent condition, with very minimal wear and it has a patina commensurate with its age. There are a few very imperceptible imperfections/bubbles within the glass commensurate with the manufacturing process. No chips or cracks. This Epergne will make an outstanding addition to any fine antique glass collection. Dimensions: 10.5″ in diameter (at its widest point), 21″ in height. The item will be professionally packed to prevent damage in transit. The item “Large Antique Victorian English Cranberry Glass Epergne Centerpiece” is in sale since Saturday, October 17, 2020.
