Highly unusual basket (or a large sweetmeat dish). It has an inscription as shown in the photos dating 1858. The basket is hallmarked on the bottom with a maker's mark, an assayer's mark and 13 1/2 which was used in Norway to denote 75% silver purity. The basket stands on four feet. It has a couple of somewhat loose parts - see images. Otherwise it looks gorgeous. Width between handles: ~ 12.0 inches, height: 3 1/4 inches, weight: 10.6 oz.
