These antique sugar baskets are an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

The applied decoration is very sharp and the bright cut engraved decoration is very crisp.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside of each basket are all very clear.

Reflections in photography may detract from the true representation of these examples of Georgian silverware.
