Worcester Floral Basket
c.1770 (Reference 530) Price: £1,250
Dimensions: handle-to-handle, 19cm.
Two-handled basket. Circular with pierced sides applied with flowers picked out in puce and green. Spray of flowers to the centre within a finely gilded border. Condition is excellent overall. This piece looks much lighter and finer than the photographs show. The blue ground is a deep, rich hue and beautifully sets-off the delicate pinks and reds of the flowers. The skill of execution of the gilded border is quite extraordinary. A beautiful piece of 18th century Worcester.
