Wow! This is truly a stunning and special piece!
This lovely Sterling silver Basket features and Art Nouveau design. I love the Fleur de Lis and the organic, undulating borders. This Basket has a Hinged handle. There is a monogram, as shown. This piece has two marks, which is perplexing. One is for Frank Smith and the other for Galt & Bros., a very prestigious and early firm based in Washington D. C. This piece measures 8" by 5 1/2" by 6 1/2" tall to the top of the handle. It is 3 3/4" tall with the handle down.
A beautiful find!
