Beautiful old silver cream puff basket.
The basket has an oval lobed bowl decorated with pearl rims and is standing on a decorated base. Furthermore, this cream puff basket has been provided with a hinging handle with engraved initials: W.H. & A.L. and the year 1861.
Walking lion 2, Minerva head, Year stamp Y 1858.
Master stamp is also present but unclear to me (view the close-up) probably made in Friesland.
This basket is in beautiful condition for its age, with a small tear of approx. 5mm on both sides of the top rim. (not really obtrusive, and can easily be restored which I find not really necessary.)
Dimensions, including handle: H19x L17.5 x W12 cm
