About

An exceptional, fine and impressive and rare antique Victorian English sterling silver swing handled bon bon basket; an addition to our ornamental silverware collection. This fine antique Victorian sterling silver basket has an oval shaped form onto a plain rectangular foot. The body of the basket is embellished with exceptional scrolling filigree decoration, incorporating large floral motifs. The undulating shaped rim of this silver bon bon basket is ornamented with a paralleling rope twist decorated border. The rectangular well of this antique basket is embellished with an exceptional embossed castle design, accented with terrain to the foreground with a gentleman by a tree; a castle top scene in such a basket is rare. The impressive castle scene is encompassed with a scrolling leaf and floral design, reflecting that of the filigree border. This fine example of Victorian silverware retains the original impressive swing handle, ornamented with further filigree decoration and incorporating a vacant oval cartouche to the central hand piece. The rectangular swept foot of this impressive bon bon basket is plain and unembellished. Condition: This antique silver filigree basket is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition. Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the foot are all very clear. Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of Victorian silverware.
