George III Pierced Silver & Glass Sugar Basket

Code: FA0697


W: 8.5cm (3.3")H: 13.5cm (5.3")D: 7.5cm (3")


Pretty little 18th century silver sugar basket set on a pedestal base with a raised shaped swing handle. The foot and body have pierced and embossed decoration, with beaded rims and it is fitted with a blue glass liner. 

Hallmarked for London 1776, maker's mark partly obscured by the decoration but I believe it is that of James Young.

It measures 13.5cm (5 1/4") high with the handle up, 8.5cm (3 3/8") high to the rim and 7.5cm (3") rim to rim, 8.5cm (3 3/8") across the handle. The total weight is 218g and silver weight is 110g/3.5ozt. 

Condition is excellent with no damage, dents or repairs and surface wear is very light.
