Rare and striking sterling silver epergne. Made by Tiffany & Co. in New York. Baluster shaft with ribbed floral flange quadrilateral raised base with 4 scallop shell-capped supports. Pierced diaper pattern and applied, chased, and repousse dense flowers, leaves, and shells. Four flower-wrapped ribbed and scrolled arms, each supporting a square tray with plain well, wide repousse shoulder, and scrolled and reeded rim. Shaft supports same larger tray.
