Best Antique Victorian 3 Pc Brides Basket Set Blown Hand Painted Crest Glass:
Here is one of the finest antique Victorian brides basket sets you'll ever find, it has everything going for it! It includes a basket, sugar, and creamer, all in hand painted, ruffled crest, cranberry opaline glass. All three pieces have a ground pontil base, creamer has an applied amber glass handle. All feature a hand painted floral design on exterior (interior basket has design also). The basket measures 9 3/4" long x 6 5/8" wide x 4 1/2" high. The creamer measures 5 1/2" long (handle to spout), x 4 3/8" wide x 3" high, sugar measures 5 1/2" long x 3 3/4" wide x 3 5/8" high. The creamer does not sit flat, but sits fine in the holder. There is light wear to the hand painted decorations, otherwise all three are in very fine to great condition with no chips or cracks. The silverplated holder features a very ornate overall motif with flowers and scrolls. It is marked; QUADRUPLE PLATE WARRANTED, AURORA SP.MFG.CO., 2400. It measures approx. 13" long x 10 1/4" wide (round handle), x 13" high. There is a side leaf missing on the large basket holding section (pictured), with overall age tarnish (needs polishing), otherwise it is in VERY GOOD condition. This would have been the master basket set at the head table in fine Victorian functions such as a wedding. It is quite agreatexample of antique Victorian glass work and should not be missed. It is much nicer than pictured. See calculated cost for shipping charge and options. THANK YOU, and good luck offerding.On Jul-22-13 at 16:33:18 PDT, seller added the following information:
