Greyhounds and Palms Centrepiece*
Silver-plated table centrepiece, unmarked but almost certainly by Elkington, with the original and still perfect clear glass bowl.
This is a pre Art Nouveau piece dating from around 1850 but is included here because it is just so delightful.
The pair of greyhounds, one seated, the other standing, are on a naturalistic base beneath the palm trees which support the dish.
One palm twig at the top appeares to have been shortened at some stage in its life but this is not obvious when the bowl is in place.
Overall height to the top rim of the bowl is around 46 cm. The base diameter is 20.5 cm at its widest point and the bowl has a diameter of 21 cm overall, 19.75 cm inside the rim.
