This antique sugar basket is a very good gauge of silver, excellent quality and in excellent condition, in keeping with age.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the foot and part hallmarks to the handle are all very clear; the maker's mark has wear in keeping with age and location, but remains legible.


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