Gorgeous piece of antique Victorian silverplate! These antique baskets are often referred to as Brides baskets but they were actually placed in the center of the table for serving bread, fruit or cake. Today, these baskets can be used in a wide variety of ways. They would make great centerpieces or elegant holders for an endless variety of items.
The inside of this lovely basket has a chased scene featuring hummingbirds, flowers and foliage.
The basket edge has a very ornate embossed geometric pattern with a matching band around the base and a very ornate handle at the top.
This basket was made by Derby Silver Company which was located in Derby, Connecticut and was one of the original companies to become part of International Silver Company.
Measurements: 10" wide at edge of geometric rim; 8" wide bowl section (not counting the smooth top rim);
4-5/8" wide circular base; 6-5/8" tall at top rim of bowl; about 13-3/4" tall to top of handle finial when in the raised position.
Backstamp: Derby Silver Co. Derby CT Quadruple Plate (inside the stem) & #1005 (incised into the bottom edge)
Exceptionally nice condition! It has been freshly but gently hand polished and is in ready to use condition. As is common with these old baskets, the plate/bowl section is not perfectly level, but it is very slight. I am amazed at the wonderful condition of the plating after all these years. Very shiny and clean, displaying beautifully!
