This remarkable and historic parcel-gilt electroplate table hails from renowned British firm Elkington & Co., the distinguished company that invented the art and science of silver plating. By the 1830s, they were awarded a patent for this revolutionary technique, and within the next decade they had perfected it. This technique and Elkington's artistry were so impressive that Queen Victoria granted them the unique honor of replicating many items in the royal collection, of which this table is one.

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.
