An Antique Cranberry Glass & Pelaton Ware Victorian Tri Branch Epergne (Code 8284). A late Victorian antique three branch epergne dating around 1880. The three branches are formed in the'jack-in-the-pulpit' design and they spring from a central clear glass and metal holder.
The bowl has a frilled rim and is dished in the traditional style. The epergne is produced in cranberry glass, and most excitingly with pelaton canes. The pelaton work is in pure white glass (rather than the coloured glass often seen), perhaps as it works better with the cranberry ground. The white canes are also more frequent than usual and it makes for a lovely effect as you can see in the images. A lovely piece of Victorian decorative glass, probably from the Stourbridge region.
It is the first pelaton epergne we have ever come across so it is likely a very scarce design.
