This very unusual piece is broad rectangular in form and stands on a rectangular spreading foot decorated with a band of tiny lobes. The bowl of the basket has a plain centre with a wide band of lobing above. The shaped raised rim displays a raying shell in each corner, flanked by acanthus foliage. Each side is also decorated with a band of lobing, the same as seen on the foot. The basket is in excellent condition and is fully marked on the foot. This design of bread basket is most unusual, as very few were made during this period and it certainly encapsulates the fashion of the day. As well as being used for bread, the basket could be used for serving a variety of things including salads, pasta and fruit, as well as being decorative when not in use. A most attractive alternative to the convential design of basket.
