for a Table or Sideboard
To me, I thought this was a table decoration, which has little feet to hold it up and little doilies tucked under all the decorations. The frame work appears to be soft metal for the trim work but which has a stronger metal center to hold all these pieces. All of the filigree decoration has an asphaltum wash with some highlights painted gold on the edges. A decorative little stand goes with the centerpiece.
Measurements: 1-3/4"h. x 3-1/4"w. x 2"d. (for the centerpiece) The stand is 2-1/2"h.
