This pair of beautiful sterling silver baskets were made by Cartier during the mid 20th Century. Handwoven, the rectangular baskets have a silver handle and are the perfect size to place sweets or little arrangements of flowers in with the help of a small glass vessel. Because the pieces are without French assay marks it can be concluded that they were produced by the American branch of Cartier who were known for their silver tableware and flatware. It is said the American branch of Cartier introduced silver to their range to compete with Tiffany & Co who were of course known for their flatware and hollowware. These baskets are in lovely condition with just some minor tarnish and polish residues and are ready for placement when setting a grand table setting.

Marked - 'Cartier' & 'HAND MADE STERLING'

Measure - 12cm H x 6.5cm W x 10cm D (each)
