Condition


This Georgian sterling silver cake basket is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional presentation condition.

The chased decoration is very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface and underside of the basket are all very clear; hallmarks to this type of basket are typically struck within the piercing, as with the maker’s mark, causing some marks to lose some definition.


Reflection in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of Georgian silverware.
