What it looks like to me is a fairy lamp epergne base with an epergne vase stuck in the hole of the base. It is interesting to note the raspberry prunt (on the bottom of the base, appearing through the hole) which is common at the bottom point of epergne vases. I think pieces of the original epergne were broken and the remaining two pieces were salvaged in an unusual configuration. Genene

That's what it looks like to me too. In addition, the top of the posey holder does not have any ruffles. Was it made that way....or, was it ground down? I suspect the latter.

I think you are correct that the scalloping has been ground down. The shape is perfect for a posey holder or posey vase on an epergne, but the vases I have seen are always scalloped or ruffled. Another possibility is that the base is a fairy lamp base with a hole drilled in it. It is only 4 3/4 inches wide. I think epergne bases are wider. The description says that it is assembled. I doubt if a candlestick or candleholder would be made in two pieces. I believe this is a created piece, not original. Genene

In comparing this posey holder to another of the same type, it does not appear that the fuffles were ground down. Strange.
