Originating in France in the 17th Century, the epergne is first seen in the UK from around 1720. Originally used as a centrepiece at the dinner table to serve food and save space, later variations added more decorative elements, such as vases for flowers and holders for candles. Larger 18th century examples are rare, with specialist makers such as Thomas and William Pitts being highly sought after.
