A beautiful Thomas Webb Burmese glass epergne with a decorated central Fairy lamp and six small vases. The epergne is also complemented with three decorated Webb Burmese vases. Overall in very good condition - there is a small chip where the Clarke candle-holder sits on the epergne (hidden with candle-holder in place), a small chip on the ring of one of the small vases and roughness to another ring. Unsigned, as expected - a similar undecorated epergne is shown on page 67 of Betty Sisk's book, 'Mt Washington Art Glass' (shown in last picture here for your convenience). All pieces (except, of course, the Clarke candle-holder) glow under UV-light, showing the presence of Uranium salts in the glass (see picture).
