Description


This magnificent and large antique silver table centrepiece, in sterling standard, has a rectangular shaped form reflecting a podium design.

The Edwardian centrepiece consists of a large central circular bowl flanked with two smaller vessels, all onto pedestal supports.


Each detachable circular receiver is plain and embellished with an applied opposing scrolling border to the undulating rim.


The supporting silver bowls are each supported to a circular knopped base, with a screw thread terminal, securing to a plain swept pedestal with volute scrolling upper and lower terminals.


The central bowl features a circular spreading foot, accented with a further screw thread to the underside and mounting a large cut cornered swept pedestal ornamented with a cast and applied panel depicting Caernarfon Castle*.


This magnificent antique silver centrepiece features two silver opposing Welsh dragons passant, to either side of the central pedestal; each dragon is embellished with cast decoration replicating the details of the dragon's scales and anatomical features.


Each opposing end of the elongated base features a silver goat, lying down; each goat is embellished with further cast decoration reproducing the animal's fur coat and anatomical features.


The underside of the centrepiece allows access to the screw fitments securing the individual components in situ.


This magnificent silver centrepiece is the finest of its type you could hope to acquire.


* Caernarfon Castle (Welsh: Castell Caernarfon) is a medieval fortress in Caernarfon, Gwynedd, north-west Wales. This Grade I listed building was erected in the 14th century and through the rebellions and sieges of the centuries it fell into a state of disrepair, until the 19th century saw rejuvenation through state funding. This castle was used for the investiture of the Prince of Wales in 1911 and again in 1969.
