An epergne is used as an ornamental centerpiece on a dining table, and was typically used for holding fruits, sweets or flowers or a combination and here is a gorgeous antique epergne with an iridescent glass flute and bowls that will certainly set the scene for any room and dinner party. Dating from the 1890's, this exquisite epergne is set with the most regal iridescent green glass flute highlighted with the two iridescent glass bowls that would look decadent filled with sweets or fruits such as grapes.

A magnificent antique centerpiece with incredible iridescent glass. Stock# T142 Circa: 1890 $2,250 - Interstate and international postage available upon request.

Vesta cases were originally used to keep matches dry and to strike them alight on the base and were widely used from the 1830's to the early 20th Century and here we have a charming antique silver vesta case that was made in France during the Art Nouveau period. The French truly embraced the Art Nouveau era and the style was often influenced by nature as can be seen here on this antique vesta case dating from the 1890's. Made in silver it measures 45.5mm by 31.7mm by 11.1mm thick and the hinge is in wonderful condition as is the striker at the base. So typical of the Art Nouveau movement that was going on at the time, this French Art Nouveau vesta case is just wonderful. Stock# ES6500 Circa: 1895 $925
