$125.00

Likely dating from the 1880s, this 4 1/2" wide, 2" high to the rim, 4" to the top of the swing handle, 2.4 T. oz., basket, shows Aesthetic design influences.

The rim is scalloped and the tapered sidewalls are undulating. The solid handle is twisted, with a smooth, square, grip at the top.

There is a large scale representation of a wild rose blossom, branch, and leaves acid etched on the otherwise plain body. Acid etching is a technique that produces a more textured surface than simple engraving, and as this piece evidences, can be quite enhancing.

Without a monogram or inscription, this is in choice estate condition. There are no dents or other surface marring, the finish is bright and even, and the handle remains securely attached and moves freely.

Marks are Whiting's "lion" logo, "Sterling," and the model number "1469A."
