Description and Details
This solid silver basket dish was made by silversmith William Comyns (& Sons) in London Beak Street 1890.
The overall proportions and aesthetics present a spectacular ornate design exhibiting the taste of elaborate and embellished Victorian silverware.
The flared edges of the basket feature a weaved design in combination with ribbon die-stamped motifs.
The embellishments are continued to the base and feet of the basket which has a curved and raised profile, further highlighting the embellished features of the basket.
The handle of the basket is fully functional with smooth folding to both sides 180 degrees. Upon holding in hand, the exceptional quality is evident with a sturdy feeling of the handle and base weight of the basket.
