Pair of Mid-Century Reed & Barton George III Style Silver and Cut-Glass Epergnes
Decorate a dining table with these elegant five-bowl antique epergnes! Created in the United States by Reed and Barton, circa 1960 and made of copper with silver-plate, the centerpiece stand on a pedestal decorated with floral and vine motifs over a round base embellished with repousse foliage decor. Each piece features a center crown supporting a large cut-glass bowl with straight edge, and four scrolling arms holding smaller cut-glass coupes with patterned decor. These beautiful center pieces are in excellent condition with a rich silver finish. Markings on the bottom indicate that they were created by Reed and Barton with numbers 166. These intricate cut-glass epergnes are traditionally used to hold flowers or fruits on a large dining room table or other surface. Henry G. Reed and Charles E. Barton first worked together as craftsman at a small silversmith manufacturing company. They honed their craft while moving up the ranks in the company. In 1824, the men became presidents and re-named the company to Reed & Barton; founding the brand we know today. They carried their deep respect for quality and craftsmanship throughout their career. These values still remain the cornerstones of the Reed & Barton brand, and they have won numerous awards, even being used in the White House by multiple U.S. presidents. Today, Reed & Barton is still one of the most recognizable names in American silver and gift ware. Measure: 21.5″ W x 21.5″ D x 14.5″ H.
