This is a fabulous 19th century Gothic Revival brides basket with center cherub, winged griffin sentinels holding shields, and perched birds. This centerpiece measures 9" to top of base and 13 1/4" to top of glass basket. This hand-blown basket measures 12 in diameter at its widest.
Wonderful pink center radiating out to a raspberry colored ruffle and edged in clear glass. Condition: Base shows some wear to the ebonized finish and one bird is missing, although I'm sure he's just flown off in search of food.
