We present a fabulous late 19th century (1854) silver plate epergne with cut crystal bowl. The epergne is raised on lion paw feet that support a circular base. A single column holds a cut crystal bowl with pierced screw on handle. The pattern is finely chased, typical of the work done by one of England’s most well-known silver companies.
George Richards and Henry Elkington originated the process of silver-plating metal in England and had patented the process by 1830. In appreciation of the company's excellent work and innovative designs, Elkington was awarded Royal warrants. They also went on to win many prestigious honors at World Expositions.
The epergne is in excellent condition.
Size: 13 ½” Height by 9” Diameter (crystal bowl).
