Charming antique hand-pierced oval fruit basket decorated on the neoclassical style that was popular in the 1780s and featuring swag and ribbon motifs so typical of the style. The swing handle is cast and similarly pierced. The height mentioned is with the handle raised.

Neoclassicism was born in Rome in the mid-18th century before spreading throughout Europe. It is the name given to Western movements in the arts and architecture that draw inspiration from the classical art and culture of Ancient Greece or Rome.
