English Victorian Silver Plated Basket
A beautiful English Victorian silver plated tea cake basket with the reticulated and impressed design in the body of the basket. This lovely brides basket has a fold down handle which has an elaborate and decorative design of swirls, fruit and flowers. The rim of this basket also has been decorated with the elaborate heavy design.
The only markings are numbers that are very hard to find and have been scratched in at the bottom of the basket (shown in photos): 1070, 7169, 401 are listed above each other, with the number 5 circled. Measurements: 13 inches in diameter at the top of the basket, 4 inches high from from the base of the pedestal base to the rim of the base. When the handle is raised the basket is 11 inches high. Condition: Very good to Excellent. This would be a lovely gift or added to a beautiful table setting. There are no scratches, user marks or dings to this beautiful English Brides tea cake basket. Bought in England and this would date to the late English Victorian era.
