A delightful little antique sterling silver basket having a classic boat shape on pedestal foot. With bead borders, a swing handle and a blue glass liner. The fine and delicate hand engraving is very charming as you’d expect from this sought after female silversmith. The body has pierced cut out motifs and bright cut engraved swags and dot borders. To the front there is an engraved crest of a lion. Weight 183 grams, 5.8 troy ounces. Height 9.5/16 cms. Top 12 x 9 cms. London 1782. Maker Hester Bateman.
This nice little antique silver bonbon basket is in very good condition with no damage or repairs. The engraving and silver hallmarks are all crisp. The handle is unmarked. The blue glass liner has no chips or cracks.
