English Silver Plated Vase and Fruit Compote Set C. 1930
A lovely English Silver Plated Vase and combine Fruit Compote set. The center vase can be removed from the compote if just the curved bowl shaped compote is needed. When the two pieces are together the measurements are: 14 1/2 inches high and at the widest point, 10 1/2 inches.
Each piece has the open cut work in the trumpet style of the vase and compote bowl.
Condition: The trumpet style vase is in very nice condition with no dents and one tiny ding near the underside of the flared vase. The compote shows some of the copper under base for the silver plate as I am sure that this was shined with vigor.
The surprise to this loving center piece has an added piece, tucked into the base. The surprise piece is a bolt that could be used if the vase is removed and the center piece is to hold only fruit. The hidden bolt would be used to close the center open area. (See Photos) This beautiful piece would have been used in a lovely dining setting, on the side board or as a center piece for an intimate table setting.
