4-Basket Silver Epergne Centrepiece, 1920
Epergne - 4 baskets - Sheffield 1920 by William Hutton & Son Ltd. - 25cm high; 40cm spread; 23cm diameter central bowl; 1470g - LD/1887
This is a beautiful, good-sized and high quality silver centrepiece in the form of a 3-branch epergne that would look stunning when fully presented in the centre of a dining table.
The three branches are fitted with removable baskets and the central section has a large 9" diameter bowl, all of these component parts can be used separately from the epergne, but give their best effect in-situ with fruit in the top bowl and sweets around the baskets, of course other food combinations could work just as well. The bowls and baskets are attractively pierced and each has a full set of corresponding hallmarks to the central frame.
Made by William Hutton and Sons, this lovely centrepiece is in fabulous condition.
