Silver wool basket, also called a knot basket. Entirely in empire style, light oval, with openwork motifs and fillet edges on bottom and handle.
- lion 2
- Minerva head
- year stamp P = 1824
- master sign IVW + motif = Jan van Wijk
Diameter: 8.2 x 7.8 and approx. 4.5 high (without handle)
In reasonably good condition. The flat edge of the basket runs somewhat "irregular", not serious but must be mentioned. See photos
There is also a restoration to the openwork part. These are 2 interconnected motifs that have been renewed. These are slightly wider and thicker. On the pictures you can judge this for yourself
My assessment is that this is not too serious. (problem with this type of basket is that the openwork silver is always very thin.
