Really lovely heavily pierced bread or cake basket in quadruple plate by the Apollo Silver Company. The basket dates to the late 1800's, it is marked Apollo Silver Co Quadruple Plate, & it carries an old monogram, I would imagine it was once a wedding gift, and may have held the wedding cake (brides basket). The whole body of the basket is heavily pierced and the basket sits on four small pierced feet, the plate is in very good order with the most minor wear, and the basket displays beautifully, it would look lovely piled with fruit or seasonal decoration as a center piece on a table or buffet. The basket is a nice large functional size, measuring from 14 1/2" end to end, from 5" table to top of the handle, and 7" wide.
