Attractively styled in classical urn form, with intricate ring work rim to both the top and bottom, the stand is sturdy and in very good order.

The origins of the wirework craft can be traced back several hundred years to central Europe and filigree work has been used in fine jewellery since Egyptian times.

This is an eye-catching egg stand with a strong continental feel that would certainly steal the show on any work surface.
