Estate find antique silvered basket with pedestal foot and handle. I believe that it is a cake or bridal basked. I couldn't find the hallmark stamp on bottom. It looks like B.S Co Silvered with a windmill and 5557. If someone knows more about this manufacturer and age, please drop me a note! This item is pretty ornate with etched scenes around the foot and inside of the basket. It appears to be a farm or countryside with cow, windmill, building that could be a church, water with boats. On the handle, there are bows and flowers. There is a bit of tarnish and I believe polish stuck in engraving. The handle is a bit bend and there are a few bumps that can be seen on the outside. There is a bit of a rock to the base. The bowl is a bit over 10 inches in diameter. A bit hard to measure, the handle from base is about 9 inches high. Thank you for looking!
