Well it's not unknown for auction items to get broken.... see my posting about the porter who dropped the entire box of Strathearn and Perthshire paperweights recently. (and who is NOT being allowed to live it down at the auction house either....)  I can't remember which thread it was in, but I was very upset... :cry:  :cry:

I wanted those weights.... :roll:
Thank you very much!

I will leave the puzzle unsolved a little longer, unless someone gets really close.

I'm reading it as "this auction house" (dallasauctiongallery) is part of Sotheby's.

The Sotheby's Royal Brierley Auction was the factory collection, so I think one can assume that the description of the waterlily epergne was correct. Logically, that suggests that the description in the Dallas auction should have been that it was a Stevens and Williams epergne and not a Webb one.

Or have I missed something? :(

Impeccable research and logic, Mr. Aaronson, but wrong.  :D

Out on a limb, now, or should I say a branch....I don't think this has been correctly described as an epergne!

An epergne is a table centrepiece with branching holders into which you slot the glass elements, usually trumpet shaped vases. Not quite sure what this is.
