This beautiful epergne is made from sterling silver although the base is filled to provide stability. It has a heart-shaped frame with 3 collars that hold trumpet-form vases with crimped rims (resembling flowers) and beaded necks. The central vase is 13.7cm (5.3) long with a neck diameter of 1.8cm (0.75) and the other two are 11.5cm (4.5) long with neck diameters of 1.2cm (0.5). The base of the circular foot is covered with blue felt although I believe this is a more recent addition.
The stand and each trumpet vase are hallmarked for Birmingham 1909 with the makers mark of Cohen & Charles. This piece is in beautiful condition and Ive tested the flower holders and found them all to be watertight. The only issues I can find are 3 or 4 pinhead dints to the trumpet sections of each flower holder but these are barely noticeable. PLEASE SCROLL DOWN PAGE TO SEE MORE IMAGES Approximate Measurements.

I source and re-home high quality antique and vintage silver at wholesale prices. On the odd occasion, I come across something that might have had a bit of a rough life but deserves a second chance rather than being consigned to the melting pot. In all cases, because buyers are purchasing from a distance, I always provide in-depth condition reports and multiple high-magnification images in my listings to give you as much information as possible.
