This is an exquisite antique epergne with three art glass rubina verde (cranberry and vaseline) trumpets from the late 1880s. It is diminutive in size, measuring 12-1/2 inches tall and 13 inches wide from side to side including glass. The base of the silverplate stand is marked JT&C Co. The stand is a simple swan-like Victorian design that perfectly shows off the beautiful colors of the three art glass epergne trumpets. The stand is tarnished but completely intact.
The trumpets measure 6 inches tall and 4-1/4 inches wide and each fits perfectly into a ball-shaped holder in the stand. The base of each trumpet is a beautiful green vaseline color glass that blends into a cased cranberry opalescence at the top. The top edge flares like a graceful trumpet flower into four ruffles.The inside of each trumpet top is cranberry while the outside is white opalescent. The cranberry rim on the center trumpet is slightly paler than the rims on the other two (left/right) trumpets. The entire piece is in mint condition. An elegantVictorian art glass decorative to add to your collection or home décor -- and definitely in/near a window to show off the cranberry/vaseline colors!
