A superb early 19th Century Derby twin handled porcelain basket.

The basket dates back to the late Georgian period around 1820. This beautiful example has a large central reserve hand painted with painted topographical scene “In Switzerland” in the manner of John Brewer.

The body of the basket features extensive and elaborate gilt work over a white ground. It is also gilded to the underside.

The Derby crossed baton mark and the name of the scene in black are featured to the underside.

A very showy piece which would make a marvellous addition to a collection of fine antique porcelain.

Condition
Excellent condition, without any damage or signs of restoration. No glaze crazing or any other issues. Gilt is remarkably good for age with very limited wear.
