This decoration is known as Mary Gregory glass which was popular in the last quarter of the 19th Century. The stand is also elaborately decorated with paneled sides with applied leaves and berries mounted at each corner.
The swing handle also has a paneled design and mounts on two sides onto an ornately pierced decorated attachment. The basket sits on four large feet decorated with the same design as the handle mounts and also has a molded acorn at each corner.
Measures 3 1/4" high (at sides), 9 1/2" high (with handle upright) and is 9 3/4 square. The Mary Gregory decorated glass base measures 6 1/2. This lovely bride's basket is in excellent Estate condition with only a couple of noted specifics. The silverplated frame has natural aged patina and we are leaving it as found without polishing.
There are two nicks/cuts on the top edge (see photos) and the amethyst glass base insert has been re-caulked on the underside to hold it securely in place (see photos).
