ANTIQUE DECORATED RUSSIAN SILVER FILIGREEBASKET FROM ABOUT 1900
This is a very high quality completely silver Russian basket. It is antique, and has various known usages (e.g. Bonbon basket, flowery basket etc.). This beautiful item was made at about 1900.
It was very interestingly shaped in a flower, with then all sorts of leaves and flowers made out of silver represented in there as well. Its legs were magnificently crafted to form leafs, something that gives you the optical illusion of the whole basket floatingâ€”how would leafs be able to embed something that heavy, for that matter?
The work done on this basket is very very detailed, sophisticated, artistic, and interesting to watch overall called filigree. It truly shows you that level of professionalism that youâ€™d want to see in such a beautiful piece, this is an item that you not merely want to have on your table, you need it there as well. This lovely item was made of 2nd grade silver (835).
This true work of art would turn any dull old table into the roomâ€™s eye catcher, being it that it is completely silver and interestingly shaped, or being the more worldly beholder noticing its amazing level of detail and shapes.
The measurements of this item are about:
In cm: 15 high (handle standing upwards) x 16 diameter Ã˜
In inch: 6 high (handle standing upwards) x 6.3 diameter Ã˜
