The glass bowl in the silver plated basket has a story behind it. I purchased it from an estate of a Fenton glass collector. A letter accompanied the bowl from the Fenton Company. I was told it was an experimental piece. I contacted the Fenton museum, who referred me to their historian who emailed me, "Your item is not Fenton Peach Crest, although it's easily confused with Peach Crest. Our fine crimp and double crimp treatment is not the same, but, most importantly, our Peach Crest bowls do not have that depression (polished-pontil mark) that I asked you about. Your item has three layers of glass; gold, ruby interior, milk glass and crystal exterior. This piece is probably English from the 1880's -1890's and was, in fact, the inspiration for our Peach Crest."

The silver plated basket is also from the Victorian era. The bowl and basket are a marriage. The silver plated basket does not display a company mark. The basket is very detailed and depicts love birds and a floral motif. The marks on the base are an engraved number for personal identification in case of theft. After I purchased the basket I saw that a swag on the bottom of the handle had been repaired and had broken off. I had this repaired by a professional silver restorer and re-silvered (see last photo).

The silver plated basket is 5 1/4" in height and measures handle to handle 14 1/2" with an outside rim diameter of 8 1/4" and an inside rim diameter of 5 1/4".

The bow is 3 3/4" in height with a rim diameter of 10 1/2". The bowl is in good condition with no chips or cracks.
