Description


This fine antique Victorian sterling silver basket has an oval shaped form onto a plain rectangular foot.


The body of the basket is embellished with exceptional scrolling filigree decoration, incorporating large floral motifs.


The undulating shaped rim of this silver bon bon basket is ornamented with a paralleling rope twist decorated border.


The rectangular well of this antique basket is embellished with an exceptional embossed castle design, accented with terrain to the foreground with a gentleman by a tree; a castle top scene in such a basket is rare.


The impressive castle scene is encompassed with a scrolling leaf and floral design, reflecting that of the filigree border.
