Epergne Baskets – Practical And Pretty Displays For Small Objects

Originally from France

An epergne is a handy countertop storage piece.

An epergne (from viva terra.com) is useful in a bathroom or kitchen.

and made from silver to hold sweets or flowers on tables in more formal dining rooms, epergnes (pronounced, a-pern) were called “surtouts.” Today, they are made from various other metals as well as porcelain.

The most common, three-tiered epergne baskets, are used for practical and pretty displays, filled with fruits and vegetables on kitchen counters, or for parties, filled with sweets such as cupcakes. In bathrooms they are equally practical when used for soaps, toiletries, candles and other small objects.
