    Hello Everyone.
    Good Evening from Ontario.2018-05-5

    I found this double bowl center piece last month at my local thrift shop, the mount is brass with applied silver , this piece have 2 little Cranberry glass cup on each side, with very finely applied glass decoration that go from the rim edge to the bottom of the bowl(that remind me some LOETZ AUSF 166)
    The quality of this piece is very top of the line, the mount itself remind of Stevens and William work.
    When you tap gently on the bowl side, you hearing a very high pitch tone.

    Overall measurement are 6.75 inches tall, by 9.25 inches wide, the cup are 1.25 high by 4 inches wide.

    Many thanks for looking.

      This was an amazing thrift store find! What an impressive piece! The machine threading on the dishes is first class & the stand is so elegant. It may even be a little earlier than the Art Deco era...I have a S&W single epergne with fine machine applied threading on a brass stand which is likely late Victorian - Art Nouveau.
