Here is a very old silver sweet meat basket. It dates back to the late 18th or early 19th century. The workmanship in this basket is superb from the reticulated pattern to all the chasing work. The handle and the foot show the same attention to fine detail and workmanship. The basket is hall marked and bears similar hall marks to some American pieces ,however I think this piece is of Dutch or German origin. I have included a photo of all the hallmarks in the listing. This piece has been tested and tests to be solid silver. Weight is 151 grams or 5. 3 ounces. The basket is in excellent condition ,no repairs or damage. The measurements are, 6 inches in length by 4 1/2 inches wide by 2 inches high.
