Neoclassical, boat-shaped antique silver sugar basket, with crisp hand-engraved, pierced decoration. The basket sits on a stepped oval foot with thread borders and has a hinged loop handle and blue glass liner.

The matching silver sifter spoon was made by William Devenport of Birmingham in 1894 and both pieces are hand engraved with the initials HL.

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.
