Antique Silver Baskets

Antique silver baskets can be found in a dizzing array of styles and breathtaking intricate designs. Traditionally woven from wicker the designs by the late 1700's were replaced with the  more delicate material of silver wire. This medium allowed for designs to incorporate what we see today on the pleathora of antique silver baskets; acanthus leaf, shell and foliate designs.

Today you can find vintage silver from the Victorian era in the style of a bon bon basket, the swirling designs of an Edwardian bread basket, or the sharp, edgy lines of an Art Deco antique silver tea set.
