Vintage Art Deco Sterling Silver Candy Basket with Handle - Monogram LMD

Dating to the 1930s or so may I offer this silver candy basket, bon bon dish or container, pierced with a moveable handle at the top. At the bottom of the bowl is a monogram that reads LMD and no, this is not the type of basket that has a cobalt liner.

Condition: Being vintage, there are light marks of use, storage and time. The patina is wonderfully warm and I try to only lightly polish for photos. There are no major defects like dings, dents or ugly blemishes that might spoil the beauty of the silver. If a high shine is desired, all that’s needed is another polish.

Metal content: Sterling Silver with a Hallmark of STERLING as well as a Makers Mark (that is only partial and therefore I do not know the maker), 132

Size: With the handle up, the piece stands about 4" high; with the handle, the bowl measures 2-1/8" high. Width at the top is 3-7/8", at the base 2-3/16".

Weight: 63.8 grams

Final Comments: Absolutely adorable. For this small piece of silver, I'd love to see butter mints on the inside!

FINAL COMMENTS: When I can, I will beat anyone’s price on RL. I want to turn over the silver inventory quickly so I can keep loading in more. St. Louis was a boom city in the 1800s and the silver inventory here is legendary. For those who know, the 1904 World’s Fair held one of the largest competitions in silver design – all the big maker names of the day competed and a lot of the winning pieces stayed in St. Louis after the Fair ended. So keep watching my listings, I never know what I am going to have week to week – all I know is it will be varied, fabulous and deserving of a good home.
