Vintage Small Silver Basket

Vintage Small Silver Basket

26.50

This precious little silver basket has a hinging handle across the middle. The top of the handle and all around the edges of the basket are decorated with a floral motif, including punches through the metal in the design around the edges. The silver has a hammered effect on the inside of the basket and around the edges, though the underside/bottom of the basket is smooth and flat. The floral motif on the handle is right along the top and the rest of the handle is smooth down to the hinges where it attaches to the body of the basket. The hinges move smoothly so that the handle can fold down to either side without hindrance.

The sticker that would have been on the bottom of this basket originally has been removed. There is still a bit of an outline where it would have been. There is a stamp next to it but unfortunately it's illegible so I'm not positive who made this pretty little basket.

Because this is a vintage piece of silver or silver plate that has been exposed to the air, it has a lovely tarnish. The floral motif might look cool if you polished just the top and left the indentations dark but I personally like the color.

Approximately 6 5/8" X 4 7/8 ". It is about 1 1/4" deep and about 4 5/8" tall when the handle is straight up.

It would make a lovely little flower girl basket for a little girl or could be used as a ring holder or little dish to hold things.
