A rare George II sterling silver basket of oval form with swing handle. Excellent weight and colour. The basket has a pierced body with a shell decorated cast silver border and it stands on a flared and pierced gallery foot. At this time baskets were used mainly for bread and fruit. The centre has a crisp hand engraved decoration enclosing an empty cartouche. Weight 1585 grams, 50.9 troy oz. Height 20cm (with handle), 8.3cm (basket only). Top measures 29.5 x 26.5cm. London 1738.

This lovely antique basket is in very good condition. Stamped underneath with a full set of clear English silver hallmarks, handle unmarked. The cast decoration and engravings are still crisp. There are 2 very small repairs to the piercing.
