Marks: The makers mark stamp underneath bowl for Martin Hall & Co Sheffield
This epergne is in beautiful, antique condition. Has expected signs of age and use such as light surface scratches (or cuts), possible spots of tarnish and/or polish residue. Although still extremely shiny, there are some bruises and tiny dings (noticeable on the ball at the top) and a small flower is missing on one of the candelabra arms. The body leans slightly, but seems to stem from the top right underneath the ball area. This potentially could be fixed by a professional, but is still very lovely and usable as is. This is priced with all the flaws in mind. No other obvious damage.
