Antique Victorian Sterling Silver Basket 18907392
This is a gorgeous good sized antique Victorian sterling silver dish/basket measuring 10 1/2″ (27 cms) across x 3 1/4″ (8 cms) high to the rim and 9 3/4″ (25 cms) high to the top of the handle when it’s up.
It weighs 745 grams which gives you some idea of the quality and has beautiful embossed flowers in the bowl.
It’s hallmarked for Sheffield 1890 with the silversmiths mark for John Newton Mappin and is also marked underneath Mappin & Webb – always a sign of quality.
It has a pretty shaped rim wiht a twist handle that swings freely.
It’s in excellent condition with no damage (any marks you can see in the photos are just reflections) and would make a great addition to any collection
