This small 19th century delight measures 2.75" (7 cm) diameter by 1" (2.5 cm) tall. We can only assume that it was made as a child's piece or a trinket basket. This item is HAND made, each plated wire interwoven in a very accomplished manner. Please note that as it is hand made there is some slight irregularity in shape. The angle from which we took our images show it far more wonky or irregular than it actually is.
Condition is very good. There are not any signs of rubbing. If we had to be picky, there is accumulated dust in the crevices to be absolutely expected with its age.
A pretty, pretty French treasure that works far too well with many antique items.
Purchased in Southern France; this is such a dinky little item. We can see it stacked high with miniature fruits or bread rolls, displayed upon an antique doll's house table.
