A lovely trio of tube vases mounted in a ornate brass stand. I do believe the glass vases are from Legras. Each tube vase is blown of vaseline opalescent glass and is cased with a spiral pattern on each. Rim is cut and reheated. The bottom of each is ground. Glass is very thick. The brass stand has rope and leaf motifs. Glass glows neon green under a black light.
In the newly published Hosch catalog (1906-1912) from the WVMOAG, Tafel 171 shows three epergne sets with similar rope and leaf brass stands with a different style of tube vases. The entire Hosch catalog is considered to be Bohemian according to Alfredo. My epergne is not a match, but I'm including the pic from the catalog to establish a time-line of production for this epergne.
