Antique Elkington & Co Silver Fruit Basket with Repousse Detail & Pierced Rim (Code 2356)
A silver repousse fruit or sweetmeat dish by the venerable Elkington & Co silversmiths of the Birmingham jewellery quarter. It has a Birmingham hallmark for 1898 making it late Victorian in period and it has the makers stamp also embossed to the side. The style anticipates the Edwardian with garlands and cartouche, there are also shell details to the rim and pierced work sections. It is a good sized example at 12" across.
Very good for period and nicely polished. Wear is low and there are very few indents all of which are very minor. There is one small split to the rim (pictured) which looks to be from production.
