This dainty Victorian epergne is one entire centerpiece and does not come apart. Blown of vaseline and opalescent glass. Opalescent is a panel pattern throughout both piece. Bowl has a nice crimped rim and the trumpet shaped vase also has crimped rim. Vase is applied in the center of the bowl and has applied pink rosettes with leaves on one side of the vase. Truth be told it glows neon green.

7-1/4" tall. Bowl has a 4-1/4" diameter rim and the base is 2-3/4" diameter. The rim on the trumpet shaped vase is 3-1/2" diameter.

This epergne is in Cyril Manley's, Decorative Victorian Glass book and is attributed to Burtles, Tate & Co., 19thC. Personally, I tend to believe it's Bohemian.

    A real beauty-- I concur that it is Bohemian.

    I have several vases that are very similar in style.

    Ahh what an example of ART, the applied glass flowers and stem compliment the striped pattern very nicely, reminds me of a vase I posted a while back! I would love to get my hands on such a wonderful Epergne, but alas they are very rare and expensive! Maybe i'll find a deal someday if i'm lucky! :)
