Description


This magnificent antique Victorian sterling silver six light candelabrum centrepiece has a naturalistic interlacing fruiting vine form.


The centrepiece retains the three original fully hallmarked detachable bifurcating arms (labra) with urn shaped capitals to each terminal.


Each capital retains the original fully hallmarked detachable sconce, encircled with a shaped grape and leaf decorated border around the rim.


These individually numbered arms are secured by the original fully hallmarked screw fitting central receiver.


The central receiver has an entwined vine form with multiple terminals accented with foliate and grape decoration, which support the original cut glass bowl.


The main column of the centrepiece has a fine and impressive interlacing vine form encircled with fruiting vine decoration to the upper and lower portions.


The large and impressive spreading base is ornamented with a fine cast applied vine style border to the shaped lower rim accented with scroll bordered grape and leaf designs.


The upper portion of the base is encircled with an embossed scrolling leaf and bead decorated border.


One of the four broader panels around the base is embellished with a fine and impressive bright cut engraved coat of arms of a scrolling leaf bordered escutcheon party per pale, in the first half three bars azure accented with six mullets, and a chevron over an ermine background to the second half.


The lower portion of the narrower panels is further embellished with a flat engraved palmette style leaf and bead motif.


This fine example of antique silverware is supported by three exceptional, fine and impressive large chased ornamented acanthus leaf feet accented with graduating bead decoration.


This centrepiece is a magnificent example of its type; not only large and impressive, but with with fine relative proportions. This piece would enhance the centre of any table.

Condition


This antique centrepiece is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional presentation condition.

The decoration to the centrepiece is very sharp and very crisp.

To all intents and purposes the original glass bowl is in perfect condition apart from a couple of very minor nibbles which do not detract from the aesthetic appearance of the bowl.

Full hallmarks struck the surface of the base, the central receiver, each bifurcating arm and to each sconce are all very clear.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of antique silverware.
