Stunning pressed glass with pinwheel cuttings on center motifs. This basket was hand wrought.
This basket was considered a variant of the #350 Pinwheel and Fan and the Number 7003 was given to it until they determined through research that the true Heisey pattern number for this basket was #460.
Sparkling crystal clarity, graceful proportions and exquisite design give this basket a charm that has lasted through out the years.
Basket features a paneled solid handle, scalloped edges, many prominent fans-both at top, bottom and sides. There are 4 cut pinwheels- one on each side of this great basket, each of which features a center star or sunburst pattern. The corners of the basket have a lovely notched pattern, adding a special touch to this stunning piece.
Condition is near perfect. There are a few small bubbles in the glass as can be found in old pieces of glass. .
There is one tiny, just about imperceptible chip at the bottom corner. I couldn’t see it, but my finger did feel a small bump. No other chips, scratches or cracks, and just the very slightest of bottom shelf wear.
This stunning piece measures 11 ½” in height x 7 ½" in length x about 6 ¼” in width. The basket height at the center is 6 ¼” high. This basket is heavy and is 3/8th of an inch in thickness.
Very similar in design to Heisey’s Pinwheel & Fan.
These baskets were made in several sizes.
The price for a 7 inch #460 basket was listed $300, while a 9” was priced at $375 in the Heisey Glass Identification and Value Guide 6 years ago. Prices go up as the baskets increase in size.
This is one gorgeous, very rare distinctive basket. Ready to grace your home.
This item will be well wrapped and double boxed to assure ites safe arrival.
