Description

18th Century antique Battersea enamel oval shape basket with fretted design to the top. The outside of the basket is plain white all over, the inside is decorated with flowers round the sides and playing cards to the base. As far as I am aware these were made in sets of five originally for a card game.

This example is basically pretty good but there is some loss of enamel in places around the fretted part, I have tried to picture every side so you can judge for yourself the extent of loss.

I've had these before but never one as small as this, it is an unusually small example.
