SPECTACULAR MATTHEW BOULTON SHEFFIELD PLATE EPERGNE C. THIS MAGNIFICENT 4 ARM EPERGNE HAS 5 CRYSTAL BOWLS, GRAPE VINE BORDERS AND LION HEAD MEDALLIONS AND PAW FEET. THE 4 REMOVABLE ARMS ARE NUMBERED AND CORRESPOND TO A SLOT IN THE BASE.

IN THE CENTER IS AN OAK LEAF AND ACORN FINIAL. THE HALLMARK OF 3 SUNS, ON THE BASE OF ONE OF THE PAWS, LEADS ME TO BELIEVE THAT THIS WAS MANUFACTURED BY MATTHEW BOULTON'S FIRM AFTER HIS DEATH IN 1809. IT IS THE ONLY HALLMARK ON THE PIECE. THERE IS A FAMILY CREST OF ARROWS AND LEOPARD HEADS IN A SHIELD ON ONE SIDE OF THE BASE , AND A LEOPARD HEAD ABOVE A CROWN ON THE OTHER SIDE... THERE IS PLATE WEAR, WITH COPPER SHOWING, MOST NOTABLY ON THE EDGES OF THE COLUMNS AND AROUND THE CHEST. THE ACORN FINIAL NO LONGER SCREWS INTO THE BASE, THE THREADS HAVE WORN. THE GLASS BOWLS ARE IMPERFECT...

THE LARGE CENTER BOW AND THE SIDE BOWLS HAVE CHIPS OR FLAKES ON THE SAWTOOTH EDGES... THE LARGE BOWL ALSO HAS SOME FLAKES ALONG THE SIDES FROM REMOVING IT AND REPLACING IT IN ITS FRAME.

TWO OF THE SMALL BOWLS ARE SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT SHAPE, OBVIOUSLY REPLACEMENTS , AND ONE OF THESE HAS BEEN DRILLED AND RE-GLUED IN 3 PLACES.... STILL AN INCREDIBLE GEORGIAN EPERGNE. DUE TO THE NATURE OF THIS ITEM, WEIGHT, AND VALUE.. IS BASED ON LOCATION WEIGHT AND PRICE..
