Description


This fine antique Victorian sterling silver swing handled basket has a shaped oval form onto a shaped oval spreading foot.


The body of this impressive antique fruit basket is embellished with chased scroll and leaf decoration, accented with chased decorated fruit festoons.


The centre of the well is ornamented with a flat engraved scroll leaf and floral bordered vacant oval cartouche.


The rim of this antique basket is encompassed with an applied and pierced lobed border accented with bead ornamentation with a leaf motif to each incurve.


The arches of the border are embellished with further scrolling leaf and floral designs.


This Victorian basket retains the original hallmarked shaped bead decorated swing handle incorporating pierced circular motifs in addition to the scrolling chased decorated mystical fish terminals.


The shaped foot is encircled with a further applied bead decorated border accented with a scrolling leaf design to each incurve; this border reflects the same style as the ornamentation to the body.


Date: 1878

Condition


This antique fruit basket is a very good gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent presentation condition.

The chased and applied decoration is very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the basket and part hallmarks struck to the handle are all very clear.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of Victorian silverware.
