Description and Details
We are delighted to offer this fine antique Victorian silver bowl/basket with the marks for William Hutton & Sons, London, 1899.The basket is made from a good gauge of silver and has a good quality feel in hand despite its pierced overall design. Wonderfully embellished in neoclassical style, this elegant bowl features a pedestal base with finely pierced walls and swags of laurel leaves drooping from the central cartouche. The top edge is curved in an elegant manner, matching the overall neoclassical style with the border presenting a dotted bead pattern with four points featuring a wonderful acanthus leaf and anthemion motifs. Owing to its flared design, the basket is quite accommodating and allows for a variety of uses even in the modern day. Whether be it to hold some sweets or as a bread basket, we believe that such fine antique silverware can be a surprisingly practical and elegant manner to immediately elevate the splendour of an interior. Amongst other silverware or fine antiques or perhaps as a contrasting piece of interior decor in a contemporary setting, why not get creative and explore some modern uses for this basket? English hallmarks are present on the base of the bowl.
