Very pretty and fine quality large pierced silver basket with Bristol blue glass liner, perfect for bonbons or for use as a sugar basket. Very sturdy swing handle with pierced and engraved detail of swirls and flowers. The body is set on 4 cabriole feet, with large pierced sections depicting stylised flowers and vines and 4 round cartouches on each side. 2 with woven cross hatched pierced decoration, one with pierced floral spray and the other with a plain shield as a vacant cartouche for engraving should you wish.
It is hallmarked for Birmingham 1921 makers Adie Bros.
It measures 4 1/2" wide, 5 1/2" high to the handle and 2 5/8" high to the rim. The silver weighs 105g/3.7ozt.
Condition is very good but there a few losses to the tips of the decoration in places and some tiny discs that appear to have been punched out of the rings around the cartouches. Surface wear is very light and the liner is in fine order and appears original.
