This is a lovely lattice work porcelain basket; transfer flowers with hand painted highlights at center, an open red tulip, and garden posy. Fine woven porcelain threads inside the star shaped walls with small half circles around the rim, which is touched with gold enamel. A double rope twist makes up the table ring.
Measures 6 ½” wide x 2 1/2” tall x 3 1/8” across star-shaped base. Marked Cestar in blue under glaze, with an ornate P. Also bears illegible red stamp over glaze. Small dark places in first photo are just shadows. The piece is in excellent condition!
This little basket is not only lovely, but the porcelain “pings” sweetly, like a teacup.
Antique and vintage porcelain, pottery, glass, collectibles and, of course, knick-knacks too!
