Antique English Gilt Silver Plate 4 Arm Epergne Centerpiece with 5 Crystal Bowls. For the center of our Thanksgiving table, we have selected one of our mother’s largest, unique & most extraordinary epergnes. Seldom do you find an epergne that has been gilded & in wonderful condition – a tribute to our mother’s impeccable sensibility! By gilt we mean that a coat of gold has been laid over a metal base, in this case, silver plated metal. It is quite magnificent with its large, gilded base with 4 arms. It is expansive — reaching out to be 22 inches wide & 18 inches high. It holds an ornate cut crystal center bowl – 12 inches in diameter & 4 inches deep, & 4 matching small crystal bowls. The bowls themselves are cut in an ornate pattern with a scalloped & carved edging. It is set up about 2 inches on 4 large feet. It is a wonderful example of a gilded ornate epergne – beginning with a large sturdy gilded silver plate base, rising to a height of 18 inches. As we hope our photos demonstrate, the center bowl can hold a number of flowers. For our Thanksgiving table, we are using a pot of real tri-color mums – embellished with embedded ferns & surrounded by dried moss. We will fill the 4 side crystal bowls with tempting stuffed figs & holiday cookies. This epergne is antique – dating back to the Victorian era in the late 1800’s. This very grand gilded silver & cut crystal epergne is in excellent antique condition & ready to enhance your home. It is elegant, refined & sophisticated.
