Beautiful & rare antique sterling silver & intaglio etched or engraved bonbon or bread basket, elegant Empire style engraved floral garland, bows & ribbons! One of two fabulous basket style pieces, this one a bit newer with American hallmarks dating between 1896-1909 though no less attractive! The oval dish is a large 9 3/8" wide and is as fine as can be with a serpentine shaped rim and completely encircled by a beautiful engraved design! Great for entertaining, fill it with bonbons, chocolates or whatever for a truly gorgeous serving piece!
Excellent condition! One tiny nip and some visible surface scratching but no cracks. No damage to the silver handle. See pictures for measurements.
