This is a metal stand that holds an art glass epergne vase. The date is circa 1900.
The stand is a white metal. Parts of the stands have a silver plate over it; in the photos where you can see it being smooth and shiny, that is the parts with silver plate. The stand is not marked as to maker.
The stand has a figural deer next to a tree. It is 10” high and 4 ½” wide at the base.
The stand shows a lot of tarnish and patina, along with some white stuff that adheres to old metal.
The glass is 6 ½” long and 4 ½” wide at the top.
The glass is green and ribbed. The mouth has hobnail type of bumps. The rim is crimped and shows a band of opalescence. There are mold seams down each side. The bottom part, the point that fits into the stand, shows where the glass was chipped to fit into the stand, not chipped by dropping it, but chipped by the glassmaker so as to fit the glass into the metal. The end also shows glue residue.
The glass could possibly be English, but it seems more American to me, and is probably made by one of the New England glassmakers.
There are no other flaws than the ones I mentioned.
