ANTIQUE SILVER CENTREPIECES

The centrepiece of a table is often considered to be the most important decorative element for any occasion. The earliest known English silver centrepieces were used for serving food, however towards the end of the 18th century candle holders were added, and more sculptural forms are found, culminating in some of the most elaborate and richly decorated centrepieces being crafted during the Victorian period. It was also during the 19th century that we first see purely ornamental centrepieces being created.
