IMPORTANT offerDING AND PAYMENT INFORMATION: IF YOU PLAN TO offer ON THIS ITEM AND ARE THE HIGH buyer I WOULD LIKE TO ASK THAT YOU DO NOT PAY ME UNTIL YOU RECEIVE MY INVOICE NOT THE INVOICE THAT IS GENERATED IMMEDIATELY AT THE CONCLUSION OF THE SALE BY . now has rules that all sellers MUST ship items for which they have been paid within one business day without exception. Those who follow my sales and have bought from me over the years know that I have always had a policy of shipping within 24 hours of a sale (see my response), however, there are times when I am out of town unexpectedly for a house call, an sale or an estate call and it simply is not possible to get to the post office in time. Also, if you find that there is more than one item you are interested in offerding on over a given time period and would like to take advantage of combined shipping, please again, DO NOT pay me until the last of those items you're watching has finished. I will then send you an invoice with an adjusted shipping fee which saves on postage.. I never charge a "handling fee". I would rather wait a few days on a payment and extend you the advantage of lower shipping fees than to be paid immediately - not ship - and then be scored negatively by for not shipping soon enough.
Offered in this sale is a fabulous hand painted Spode porcelain openwork basket and matching reticulated undertray that I would date to the very early 1800s. Both pieces are impressed SPODE on the underside of the base which you can see illustrated in the 2nd image. The undertray measures 8 7/8" long x 7 1/4" wide, the basket measures 8 3/8" long handle to handle x 5 3/8" wide x 2 1/4" tall. They are both decorated with a colorful green, blue, red and pink Chinoiserie pattern embellished with gold gilt. The condition is outstanding. Other than some minor wear to the gold gilt on the surface of the tray in a couple of spots there are absolutely no chips, cracks, flakes, hairlines or restoration. You don't often find these delicate baskets and trays without damage or restoration. Please feel free to email with any questions. I always guarantee everything that I sell to be as described. This set is being sold WITHOUT A RESERVE as long as there is an opening offer. High buyer to pay $10.00 shipping/ including insurance - inside the United States.
