The body of the bon bon basket is embellished with embossed and pierced decorated panels of scrolling leaf and floral ornamentation below a band of bud festoons, all incorporating an oval cartouche to either side. One cartouche displays the contemporary bright cut engraved crest of a demi-lion rampant and the other features the monograph initials 'CGA'. Each cartouche is ornamented with a ribbon bow design to the upper portion and a suspended bud motif to the lower portion. This receiver is fitted with the original removable glass dish ornamented with a band of etched decoration paralleling the shaped rim, in addition to a star cut motif to the underside.
