Pretty late-Victorian silver-plated bread or cake basket. The boat-shaped basked features fluted sides and a band of delicate hand-pierced decoration. Like most baskets and bowls, they can be used in whatever way the owner chooses.

The bread basket has a long history in England. Decorative oval or boat-shaped baskets used for bread were introduced during the reign of George II (1727-1760). These early bread baskets were quite heavy and as time went on the designs changed and the baskets became much lighter.

Prices exclude custom clearance fees which, where appropriate, will be charged directly to the client by your receiving courier, importer or government.
