Fabulous antique Victorian era continental sterling silver & wheel cut crystal basket style bonbon dish, cabriole style legs with fruit & foliage garland and Caryatid style figural busts! A truly beautiful piece, the crystal has ornate and deep wheel cut pattern and simply shimmers! German hallmarks on the silver, marked .800 silver content so it's just under the .925 of sterling silver but the standard content for the age and area. Filigree handle with engraved monogram and all in wonderful shape, don't miss it!
Very good condition. A few small nips to the top points of the crystal insert, one larger chipped tip on one side. No damage that I can see to the silver. The silver portion alone, minus the crystal insert, weighs 7.5 troy ounces or 230 grams. See pictures for measurements.
