Antique Victorian Silver Plate Baskets

Antique silver plated baskets have been produced in England since the 18th century. In the Georgian period, baskets became increasingly popular for several reasons. The first reason is that baskets are decorative pieces which make excellent centerpieces. During the Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian eras, the wealthy and middle classes became enamored with dinner parties. Setting a beautiful dinner table was a wonderful way to show off their wealth as well as their great taste. Baskets with their handles, were a way at the table for food to be passed by guests rather than being served by the staff. Food used in these baskets usually consisted of bread, fruit, cakes as well as sweet treats. From elaborate Rococo and Victorian designs, to the plainer Edwardian and Art Deco forms, there is a basket that will complement all types of tables.
