A stunning huge size antique Victorian silver plated epergne with four cast detachable scroll and leaf arms which hold 21.6cm (8.5") diameter chased bowls and the bulbous chased column holds a 33cm (13") diameter bowl. All five bowls are hand chased with flowers, scrolls and foliage. One of the 21.6cm (8.5") bowls has a repair around the border, but nothing serious. The large 38cm (15") circular base has a beaded border pattern with chasing that matches the bowls and has four vacant cartouch and stands on four scroll feet. This really is a monumental and impressive centre piece.
Date: Circa 1890.
Maker: EPNS, England.
Dimensions: H: 61cm (24") x W: 79cm (31") x D: 38cm (15").
