Condition


This antique sterling silver sugar basket with liner is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional presentation condition.

There is a slight loss to the rim of the blue glass line; this does not affect the integrity of the piece or detract from its aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside of the foot and lion passant to the handle are all very clear; the second portion of the maker's mark is poorly struck.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this example of Georgian silverware.
