The basket features intricate decorations throughout the whole body. It sits on four legs. The basket is hallmarked with lion passant for sterling silver, crowned leopard's head for London, UK, Gothic letter n for year 1768 and maker's mark for the maker S. Herbert & Co who specialized in silver baskets. The basket is in a great condition, just some tiny usage scratches at the bottom and few hard-to-notice splits and well-done repairs in decorations (see image), otherwise no damages at all.
Length: 13.5 inches, width: 12.0 inches, height: 3 1/4 inches, height to the upper point of the handle: 10 1/8 inches, weight: 26.7 oz.
