Antique opalescent white glass epergne, like vintage Bristol glass but without fire when held to the light. It's lovely nonetheless - transluscent as a bubble, hand-blown and shaped, and hand decorated in gold (though the gold is now very worn). The glass looks excellent without chips or cracks. It's 11" tall overall, and measures 6 1/2" in diameter across the centerpiece bowl. The vase 'horn' lifts in and out of the bowl easily.
