A handsome Antique Victorian Plate Basket having an oval body with a scalloped border. A very elegant swing handle complements this piece quite nicely. This basket resides on an oval base which has a thread edge border. During the Victorian era, most pieces tended to be quite elaborate and ornate in design. It is always nice to be able to find an elegant and simple cake basket like this and to be able to use it in today’s life style.
