Beautiful Victorian footed silver plate centerpiece with a tricorn shaped base and on each corner is a snarling chained dog. At the top, sits a brides basket opaline ruffled glass dish. The dish is period but not the original as when I purchased the base, there was no top. This fits great on top and has a very elegant look.
The base is in great condition for its age with no missing parts, some numbers on bottom but no makers mark. My hunch is that the base is English but not sure.
The glass top has a very small nick edge and is about 10.5" wide. The base alone is just under 7.25" tall and about 7 5/8" wide on each side. The whole thing is about 10 1/8" tall with glass top. Very nice piece!
