An elegantly made, round, chinese export silver basket divided into four exquisitely pierced sections - 2 comprising pierced bamboo decorations, and 2 comprising pierced chrysanthemum designs. The basket regally sits on 3 balled feet and has an elegant swing handle.

There is no maker's mark although there is a 'SILVER' stamp at the base. Whilst the grade of silver is not stamped, it is likely coin silver (0.900) given the vast majority of chinese export silverware is made of this grade.

Condition: Very good for its age. No damages/no repairs. See photos above for more details.

Size: 15.2 cm / 6 inches (diameter), approx 12 cm / 4.75 inches high (from tip of basket handle to floor)

Weight: 148 grams / 5.2 oz
