Early Victorian silver plated fruit basket with bale handle, circa 1850. Features a gadrooned and shell border to the body and base.
In very good condition with moderate surface wear commensurate with age. The bale handle has been repaired with a strengthening band applied and a rivet head showing to the underside. This looks like a very old repair and is of good quality. The bale handle stays in the upright position, if desired.
Approximate dimensions with handle raised are 23 cm height, 31 cm length and 22 cm width.
Approximate weight is 916 grams.
