Description and Details
This Victorian solid sterling silver basket was made by silversmith Charles Stuart Harris of London in 1890.
The entire basket is constructed from a good and thick gauge of silver despite its elegant and intricately pierced design and as such has quite a decent amount of weight despite its dainty size.
This allows for sweets/consumables/flowers to be placed within with confidence that the basket will not fall over and thus can be used practically as well as for decorative interior purposes.
The basket is additionally finely decorated with beaded ornamentations and swags on the side with the body being raised by a widened pedestal foot.
The swing handle on top can be collapsed to either side and has a smooth motion allowing for the handle to stay upright at the top.
The basket is hallmarked with English marks on the base of the foot.
An attractive, ornate and practical piece of English antique silverware - ideal for multiple practical uses such as interior decoration on its own or as an indulging manner to serve some bonbons of your choice.
