Wonderful antique Victorian to Edwardian era 13" epergne stand or vase, hand carved Black Forest figural base with bird & foliage and beautiful hand painted enameled electric blue glass flute! Isn't this one lovely! The addition of the vivid blue glass flute draws the eye and the detail of the hand painted enamel AND carved base captivate. A bit of chipping to the rim of the flute but the base is as near pristine as one could hope for. A simply superb decorative accent, don't miss it!
Very good condition. As noted, there is one larger chip to one point on the rim of the vase or flute, some smaller chips elsewhere on the rim but, luckily, the larger chip is on the back side of the piece and not the front where most of the floral enamel is. Possibly a chipped leaf tip or two to the carved base but no real damage, splitting or repairs to note. See pictures for measurements.
