Middletown Plate Basket - 1890Middletown Plate Co.
Elegant 19th century silverplated Bride's Basket by Middletown Plate Company, circa 1864 - 1899. We've seen many of these baskets with a floral design, but this one is unique in that it has a hunting scene design on the plate. These baskets were a common feature during the Victorian era when dressing up a table was an important part of entertaining.
- Measures about 9.5" in diameter and 7" tall to the plate. Total height is about 15" tall with the handle lifted up.
- Part of our Estate Collection and in very good vintage condition. We noticed some minor surface scratches from previous use, but nothing significant. The handle hinges are not stiff so the handle doesn't want to stay in the upward position on its own (it can probably be made to do this easily). This isn't a defect, but something to be aware of, depending on how you want to display this piece.
