This is a German hard paste porcelain handled basket. The underside was signed and dated by the gilder and reads as "Gloria De Vries May 28, 1931."
The basket is 9 ¾" long, 7 ½" wide and 3" high.
The handle and rim of the basket are gilded with exquisite talent by a master gilder. Embossed into the gold are round shapes to represent flowers, and stalks with leaves.
The inside of the basket and the outer sides are glazed an off-white. The bottom is glazed white.
There is no maker's mark; however the shape of the basket defines the porcelain as coming from the region of Germany.
