This stunning Antique Victorian cake basket is dated to 1872, making it a stunning example of how well antiques can age when the proper care is taken.

An antique 1913 basket is our next example. The combination of cut glass and silver is perfect in this piece. This item is a wonderful small display piece, once used as a bon bon basket, but now perfect for any of those little things you like to keep at hand.

Our final look into the world of baskets today is another Victorian piece. This bon bon basket harkens back to the lavishness of a time when such things were required by the middle classes, making this antique accessory uniquely intriguing. The heavily embellished body of this basket features scrolling leaf and floral designs. The focus of this piece is the crest of a demi-lion rampant – truly regal.

Dishes

Dishes are a very versatile antique, their various sizes allowing them to have different uses, as well as different levels of prominence in any given room. Have a look at just a few of our examples of beautiful antique dishes and see for yourself

Silver Dishes for the Home

The Art Deco style has always been a favourite of mine, and this 1941 cake dish is no different. Its angular, clean design is incredibly appealing, and – despite being nearly 80 years old – its aesthetic is very current with popular designs today. Split into four segments, this dish is beautiful and can be incredibly useful also – perhaps it’s the touch your home is missing?

Fruit dishes are useful even today, but this silver Art Deco example is perfect for heightening the decoration of any room. The rim of the dish features three finger loops for ease of access, adding a nice design flair. This fruit dish has a great size, measuring at 9.6” at its widest point; this would make it an excellent central element to decoration throughout the home.

The geometric handles on these dishes are sharp and neat in their decoration, emblematic of their era.

Enamel

Enamel and silver go together like strawberries and cream, and that is why items that incorporate both make for the best antique accessories for the home. Let’s take a moment to appreciate just a small section of the variety of items of silver that are greatly improved by the presence of enamel.

Here we go.

The design featured on this item matches scent bottles within our selection also!
