This is a beautiful sterling silver basket from the Wallace Company, and dates to the 1920's. It is hallmarked with the company logo, Sterling and numbers 2128-3.
The basket is a swing handle style and both the handle and basket rim are pierced and have a pretty floral and scroll design. The piece has an elliptical shape and measures 12" long by 9" wide. It is 11" high to the top of the handle. It may be considered a bride's basket, but I think that trend went out a bit earlier.
It is a lovely piece and could be used to serve all manner of food, candle or even filled with potpourri. It is quite stunning on its own.
The basket weighs 16.630 troy ounces and is in good vintage condition. There are no monograms and it could probably use a professional polishing if you desire. Would make a great wedding gift to the right couple.
