George II Silver Basket
A rare early English sterling silver basket of oval form having a swing handle and rope borders. With a lattice work and pierced cutwork decoration. Although a few earlier examples exist this type of basket is not generally found until the mid 18th century - at this time they were used mainly for bread and fruit. Weight 709 grams, 22.7 troy ounces. Height 8.5 cms (26 cms to top of handle). Top measures 33 x 26.5 cms. London 1756. Maker Samuel Herbert & Co.
This lovely antique basket is in very good condition. The silver marks on the edge are still clear. The handle is unmarked. There are some repairs to the basket weave (see photo).

Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
