Silver Epergne from early twentieth century Bolivia. Two side shell trays held aloft by delicately undulating stem-like supports. The center stem features a figurine of a woman, who holds the top central tray with her right arm. The work is mounted on a silver footed plinth. Two fish-like creatures sprout from the epergne's base, covered with floral and foliate designs.
