The Elegant Epergne Vintage Decorative Hard-Cover Coffee Table Book



The elegant Epergne vintage decorative hard-cover Book The dramatic tiered centrepieces of the 18th and 19th centuries are coming back into favor. Today, the term epergne designates both the tiered, ornate silver and glass centrepieces of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and the glass flower and fruit stands so in favor during the nineteenth. The Elegant Epergne features more than 80 of these glorious objects, all specially photographed for this book, in settings both sumptuous and relaxed. Particular emphasis is given to the many kinds of flowers suitable for epergnes, including roses, sweet peas, lisianthus, poppies, ranunculus, and dahlias, most of which can be grown or found for sale in cities large and small. Many of the epergnes shown here were made in England around the turn of the century; also included are some later American pieces from the Boston & Sandwich Glass Company as well as those produced by Steuben and Fenton. Each piece is described in full detail, including maker and technical workmanship. A nearly encyclopedic range of epergnes is offered. 101 illustrations and 83 full color plates. Lot #2
