An antique glass cake basket featuring a diamond block pattern. The sides of the basket have an elegant leaf etching just above the block pattern. This has a nice rim with glass mountings for the pewter handle. The stem is paneled and drops to a dainty but sturdy base.
Manufactured by Ripley and Co. Glass, this is the Mascotte also known as Dominion or Minor Block. This beauty dates to c. 1884.
Measures 9 1/2 inches for the interior basket and stands 6 1/2 inches tall. We did not find any issues such as breakage. There are bubbles inside the glass from the manufacturing process.
