English Victorian Silver-plated Suite by Elkington & Co.

$ 17,500
  • Description
    A suite of three English Victorian silver-plated objects by Elkington & Co. The suite comprises a pair of four-light candelabra and an epergne. Each candelabra is decorated with three sphinxes that sit atop a splayed paw footed platform. The stem and arms are adorned with a classic foliage decoration.

    The epergne is ornately decorated and accented with enamel work surrounding the "Three Graces"; daughters of Zeus who were said to represent youth, beauty, mirth and elegance. The graces presided over banquets and gatherings, to delight the guests of the gods.

    Elkington & Co. was founded by George Richards Elkington and his brother Henry Elkington in the 1830's. The company over the years was very successful and known to be a prime producer of silver-plated objects. Elkington received various royal warrants of appointments including an appointment from the emperor of Austria.

    Epergne 18'' high x 14'' diameter
    Candelabra 23'' high x 15'' diameter
