Chester 1913 - 5 Fluted Epergne By James & William Deakin
Chester 1913 - 5 Fluted Epergne By James & William Deakin.
This stunning piece was produced by James & William Deakin and assayed in the Chester office in 1913.
It stands 10” tall and measured 10” across it’s widest point.
The main body of the epergne is in great condition with only a slight ding to one of the panels on the stem, slight rubbing of the hallmarks and a slight split to 2 of the arms which hold the removable flutes (all pictured).
The removable flutes themselves are unfortunately quite dinged and damaged due to years of poor care. Each flute has multiple dings to the corners and panels of their bodies (as seen in pictures). One flute in particular has had the bottom crushed which has led to some significant damage (as seen in pictures).
Even though there are some negatives mentioned above, this is still an extremely attractive piece.
