While many electroplated items were small housewares or objets d'art, this impressive table measures over three feet high, adding to its rarity and prestige. Repoussé nymphs and fairies dance along the table's surface, while the base is festooned with floral and foliate motifs and subtle gadroons. The combination of gold and silver plate is both elegant and technically marvelous.
Throughout the years, Elkington & Co. were granted royal warrants by Queen Victoria, Queen Alexandra, King George V, King Edward VII, Queen Mary, and King George VI, among many others. They also supplied flatware to the luxury dining sections on the Titanic, as well as other vessels of the famed White Star Line fleet.
