Favourite Item
An early Victorian "castle-top", swing, handled basket on 4 feet. The centre of the base of the dish features a low-relief image of Abbotsford House, originally the home of Sir Walter Scot. The basket was hallmarked in Birmingham in 1837 and was made by the firm of Taylor & Perry.
Fine, overall condition. Clear marks although we can't find a lion passant or a duty mark. There is a join at the half-way point in the underside of the handle. We believe this indicates that it was made in to sections but it is possible that a break occurred at some point and was repaired.
