This spectacular large German 800 silver swing handle wedding basket has beautiful detailing and dates between 1890 and 1920. What's even more unusual about it is that it has a custom-made glass liner that is in perfect condition. Slightly ovoid in shape, the elaborate openwork detailing with cabuchon panels shows a man and a woman in the garden on each side. It is a bit longer than it is wide, and flares from the base to the top with a basketweave rim detail over a scalloped edge. The basket measures 10-1/2 inches tall with the handle down, and 16 inches with it up. The basket is 9-3/4 x 8-3/4 inches wide. It weighs 22.31 troy ounces. This is a beautiful piece.
