Elegant French silver basket weave cake / fruit basket / centerpiece. This basket weave technique is known as vannerie (basketry). The basket has a beautifully shaped carry handle and is marked in tiny all caps on the body's metal strips France (interior end) and Sterling (exterior center near top edge). It appears to be made of mixed metals, bronze and silver toned. Perfect for bread, cake, fruit or similar. A hard to find piece, we have never seen another one like it, only a similar, smaller version with a simpler handle made by Christofle. An elegant yet informal piece that fits into a wide variety of settings and decor. This is a heavy and substantial piece weighing about 1 3/8 lbs. unpacked. In very good used condition with minor imperfections as shown. Shipped fully insured with tracking number.
Measurements: 12 5/8" long by 7 1/4" wide by 6" tall including handle approximately.
